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. Louis. 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. See our website: www.ci.stevens-point.wi.us About Our University.
