THINGS TO DO

Hutchinson House Photo courtesy of Waupaca Historical Society

Waupaca History For nearly 10,000 years, the Menominee Indian tribe occupied 10 million acres, including much of Waupaca County. In 1848, a final treaty with the Menominee relinquished the last of their lands, including Waupaca. The following year, five men from Vermont travelled west from Plymouth, Wisconsin in search of new lands. Before long, they journeyed up the Waupaca River, finding “The Falls” and making camp near the end of what is today North Main Street. As the city grew, “The Falls” was named Waupaca, taking its name from a Menominee word meaning, “the quality of light, or morning light on the water.” Waupaca steadily grew around the water, harnessing the power of the falls and welcoming many more settlers, including many Danish and Scandinavian immigrants. And just like those first settlers, people today continue to visit Waupaca for its river and lakes, abundant resources and endless possibilities.

Thursdays 10 a.m.-2 p.m., and Saturdays 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Admission is free, but donations are appreciated. Also open for special events and tours by appointment. (715) 256-9980 | www.WaupacaHistoricalSociety.org

Waupaca Railroad Depot  525 Oak Street (County E), Waupaca. (just north of the train bridge) At one time, the Waupaca Depot was a significant part of the Waupaca community and the first thing seen by travelers when arriving in Waupaca. In 1907, after a fire destroyed the previous building, the Wisconsin Central built a brand-new depot for this important tourist and shipping location. In 1987, the railroad closed the building and it sat empty until 2004 when the Waupaca Historical Society purchased it. Since then, the historical society has worked to restore the building to its former beauty. The Waupaca Railroad Depot features railroad displays, model train layout and several outbuildings, including an original Soo Line potato car. Open Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day weekend on Saturdays, Sundays and summer holidays from 12-5 p.m. Also open for special events and tours by appointment.

Yellowstone Trail City of Waupaca. In 1912 the Yellowstone Trail became proposed as America’s first transcontinental highway across the northern portion of the country – stretching from the east coast at Plymouth Rock, Massachusetts and ending on the west coast at Puget Sound, Washington. The name derives either from the people using the trail to reach Yellowstone National Park, or because of the stones painted yellow to mark the trail. The Yellowstone trail entered the City of Waupaca by what was the Bunker Hill School located on the south side of Highway 10 on County Road A. You can find signs marking the route traveling westward. The Waupaca Area Chamber of Commerce has additional information about the Yellowstone Trail and what sites travelers would have seen passing through the Waupaca Area.
