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. Holly History & Genealogy Center

525 Oak Street (County E), Waupaca.

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.

THINGS TO DO

The dedicated staff strives to meet the needs of veterans by providing compassionate care built on the foundation of honor and respect. Tour the grounds which spans across 320 picturesque acres of where you will see the Main Chapel built in 1890 and the Commandant’s Quarters, a beautiful Queen Anne style home both of which are on the Wisconsin Register of Historic Places.

(715) 258-5586 | www.WisVets.com

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 and CVB has additional information about the Yellowstone Trail and what sites travelers can see passing through the Waupaca Area.
