WAUPACA COUNTY COMMUNITIES Clintonville

Whether you live, work or play in the Clintonville area you’re sure to find plenty to do. Clintonville is home, a safe and comfortable place to live, work and raise a family. Our rich history sets us apart from other places in the area. Our historical society is very active and takes great pride in the wonderful historical area that they maintain. Here you can visit an original cordwood house or take a peek at a collection of historical stones including a section of The Great Wall of China. A visit to the Four Wheel Drive Museum is a definite must where you will learn how the ball and socket steering joint located at both the front and rear axel allowing for four wheel drive traction was first created. The people and families who live here today continue the traditions of friendship, cooperation and commitment to the future. We are fortunate to have a variety of business, industry and natural resources. Clintonville is a great place to live with an active, forward thinking city government. With excellent schools, friendly people and a quaint small town feel I’m sure that you will find Clintonville has just what you’ve been looking for.

Fremont

Fremont is blessed with the amazing beauty of the Wolf River, as a part of the Winnebago system, and for that reason alone makes it a hot spot on your journey. With incredible year round fishing, a plethora of restaurants, and the welcoming access for boating and water sports, Fremont’s where it’s at. Need a little more information? Visit the Fremont Area Chamber of Commerce’s website at www.travelfremont.com and you’ll find it there! Or if you’re in town, simply visit the FACC’s Visitor’s Information Center.

Iola

Settled in the Mid-1800s, Iola’s Norwegian heritage is still evident in warm hospitality, coffee breaks, and touches of Scandinavian accents which make it “A Very Special Place.” Held annually the second weekend in July, Iola Old Car Show is attended by over 100,000 car enthusiasts with up to 2,500 show cars. Glacier Wood Golf Course offers a beautiful eighteen-hole challenging course nestled in the rolling glacier forests. The Iola Vintage Military, Gun, Vintage Tractors & Equipment Show is held the second weekend in August. Water related activities are abundant with a multitude of lakes and streams. Driving on the serene roadways you’ll see a variety of wildlife. Iola’s Historical Society Complex consists of a depot, town hall, one-room log cabin, one-room schoolhouse and a replica 1901 firehouse.

Waupaca Chain O’Lakes

Nestled amongst pristine spring-fed lakes and the Crystal and Waupaca Rivers in Central Wisconsin is the Waupaca Chain O’ Lakes Area, consisting of the City of Waupaca, the King area, and neighboring villages. This thriving community was settled in the mid-to-late 1800’s and is home to about 25,000 residents (about 6,000 in the City of Waupaca itself). The unique natural features of the area marry its rich history to entice visitors year-round. Originally, the Menomonie tribe had many villages here and considered the area sacred. Our Native heritage is still apparent – for example, one of the most popular features on ‘the Chain’ is the famous Indian Crossing, a channel between Lime Kiln and Columbia Lakes. Hartman Creek State Park, the Ice Age and River Ridge Trails, and dozens of community parks, public beaches and boat landings are just a few of the places to discover nature and pursue water activities. The area also offers shopping, business, and entertainment to rival that of many larger communities – plus museums, galleries, zoos, festivals, and music. With a solid business community, a diverse and friendly populace, and a natural playground all around, it’s no wonder so many find the Waupaca Chain O’ Lakes Area so irresistible.

Weyauwega

Weyauwega (pronounced Y-O-Wega) was established 153 years ago. What the Menominee Indian-originated name means has several interpretations - none of which can be sure. As original as its name, this small city of close to 2,000 people has charm and character. Just stepping off U.S. Highway 10 in Central Wisconsin, you’ll leave the fast lane.
