About Stevens Point

Stevens Point, Wisconsin

 

 

 

Stevens Point is the county seat of Portage CountyWisconsinUnited States. The city was incorporated in 1858.

Its 2010 population of 26,717 makes it the largest city in the county.  Stevens Point forms the core of the United States Census Bureau's Stevens Point Micropolitan Statistical Area, which had a 2010 population of 69,916.

Stevens Point is home to the University of Wisconsin–Stevens Point and a campus of Mid-State Technical College.

 

 

 

 

 

 

History

 

 

 

 

 

Historically part of the Menominee homelands, a three-mile strip along the Wisconsin River was ceded to the United States in an 1836 treaty. In 1854 the Menominee made its last treaty with the U.S., gathering on a reservation on the Wolf River.

Stevens Point was named after George Stevens, who operated a grocery and supply business on the Wisconsin River during the extensive logging of interior Wisconsin. The river was used by logging companies to float logs to market. Loggers on the river found this a convenient stopping point, as the river bends slightly and the operation was from far upstream. The town developed from Stevens's post and was named for him.

In 1845, the postal service came to Stevens Point and with this improvement in communications, within twenty years, the population tripled.

In 1847, the first plat was laid out of what would become the City of Stevens Point, including what was then and now known as the Public Square. The town square originally was an area next to the Wisconsin River where professionals, craftsmen, businessmen and loggers gathered before their journey north or south on the river, bringing revenue to the area. As years went by, the area around the town square grew as logging increased.

Most buildings were first built with readily available wood. Many cases of early fires were reported from 1850–1890. Around 1880, buildings began to be built with materials such as brick and sandstone. Quarries in Ellis, Wisconsinopened.

 

 

 

 

 

Geography 

 

 

 

 


According to the United States Census Bureau, the city encompasses 17.20 square miles (44.55 km2), including 15.96 square miles (41.3 km2) of land 1.24 square miles (3.2 km2) of water.

The Stevens Point Area Public School District serves the city, as do the Stevens Point Area Catholic Schools.

Public elementary schools include Bannach, Jefferson School for the Arts, Kennedy, Madison, McDill, McKinley, Roosevelt, Plover-Whiting, and Washington Service-Learning Center. There are two junior high schools, Ben Franklin and P. J. Jacobs, and two high schools, Stevens Point Area Senior High (SPASH) and Charles F. Fernandez Center for Alternative Learning.

Parochial schools include St. Paul Lutheran School (PreK-8), St. Joseph Early Childhood Center, St. Stanislaus (K-2) and St. Stephen Elementary (3-5) Schools, St. Peter Middle School, and Pacelli High School.

The city serves as the hub of the Portage County Public Library, which provides educational resources and programming for adults, young adults and children.

Stevens Point is home to the University of Wisconsin–Stevens Point (UWSP), which includes the College of Natural Resources. UWSP was established in 1894 as the Stevens Point Normal School. The university enrolls approximately 9,500 students in undergraduate and graduate degree programs, and is consistently named one of the top Public Midwestern Universities-Master's in "U.S. News & World Report"’s College Rankings. Mid-State Technical College (MSTC) is also located in the city.

 

 

 

 

 

Culture

 

 

 

 

 

Stevens Point is home to a community theater group (cwACT), a children's museum and a group of museums run by the Portage County Historical Society, including the Beth Israel Congregation Museum, located in the former synagogue. (The synagogue has been defunct since 1985.)

Religion plays a big role in the community. In 1847 the first recorded religious service was held near the town square with a pastor from Norway. As time went by, more religions joined the town square, and by 1900, Catholic, Lutheran, and Methodist churches and Jewish synagogues were established within one mile of the downtown area.

The Central Wisconsin Symphony Orchestra (CWSO) presents four concerts each season.

Most events happen near the downtown area, many at the newly transformed town square that was rebuilt in 2011. These include the annual riverfront rendezvous, corn on the curb, sculpture park summer celebration, Fourth of July parade, Krazy Days and Gather at the River.

 

 

 

 

The town square hosts a farmers' market Monday evenings and Saturday mornings.

The downtown area was designated a "Wisconsin Main Street Community" and offers specialty shops, restaurants, an enclosed shopping mall and offices. Buildings in downtown Stevens Point are made from materials including Lake Superiorlimestone, brick, and red granite. The city and county administrative offices are located downtown, as well as a bank regional headquarters and two insurance companies. The downtown also offers night life on "the Square" that is popular with college students and a farmers' market that has been selling fresh produce for over one hundred years. The farmers' market is open early summer through early fall.

Stevens Point hosts the world's largest trivia contest, run by UWSP's radio station, WWSP-FM. The contest, which typically involves over 12,000 contestants in more than 400 teams, is held every year in April and lasts 54 hours, from Friday to Sunday.

The city is the setting for Disney's Liv and Maddie.

 

 

 

 

 

Recreation

 

 

 

 

The area hosts 20 developed parks, a 26-mile (42 km) bicycle and a jogging trail (the Green Circle Trail) that surrounds and winds through the city, and the Ice Age National Scenic Trail, which runs through the city. An 18-hole Robert Trent Jones, Jr.-designed golf course and country club, SentryWorld, is located at the Sentry Insurance Home Office. The Schmeeckle Reserve, a nature reserve, is located on the University of Wisconsin–Stevens Point campus.

The area also has Goerke Park, including a football stadium where middle school, high school and college athletes compete. An outdoor track is used by the same groups.

The Backwaters Paddle Quest canoe adventure challenge has been held in Stevens Point on the Wisconsin River since 2002, usually during the second week of August. Players paddle their crafts over two days past checkpoints along the river, encountering characters who act out a storyline that continues year to year.
