Stevens Point is located near the geographical center of the
state, along the banks of the scenic Wisconsin River.
In pioneer days, this was the Gateway to the Pinery, where
sawmills whined as they chewed logs from northern forests
into rough lumber for use in building houses as far south as St.
By the early 1870s, more than a decade after the city had
been incorporated, the railroad arrived. About the same time
Stevens Point was designated as the new seat of government
for Portage County. The little brewery on Water Street was
thriving [and still is]. The latter part of the nineteenth century
brought our paper mills and the development of agriculture
followed by the addition of several agri-business firms and the
emergence of the Golden Sands as a major national producer
of vegetables.
Today, the world headquarters for Sentry Insurance, with
its 2,500 employees, has the largest payroll in the area. It is
followed by the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point.
The diversity of businesses, industries and services has
provided a balance in the local economy as well as a strong
shield against recessions for people throughout the area.
The cultural life of Portage County is enhanced by the $4
million county library in downtown Stevens Point and several
satellite facilities in nearby villages. The Central Wisconsin
Symphony, City Band, Community Theater and the historic
downtown district, adjacent Stevens Point's mall, are
important civic and cultural attractions.
Health care delivery is available in several local clinics
plus the 144-bed St. Michael's Hospital. The Marshfield
Clinic, about 35 miles to the west, is highly acclaimed for its
diagnostic and treatment services.
Recreation opportunities abound in area lakes and city and
county parks. There are three golf courses in the immediate
Stevens Point metropolitan area, including Sentry World
Sports Center that also has indoor fitness/tennis facilities. An
extensive YMCA program supports the entire community.
