Wisconsin Towns and Places


Prescott is Pierce County. It is located where the St. Croix River meets the Mighty Mississippi. It is among the oldest towns in the state. Its lift bridge is a fascinating piece of architecture, built in 1984. Freedom Park is up on the bluff above the Mississippi on the southern side of Prescott. It offers a state-of-the-art learning center. You might also watch the goats eat8ing up the overgrown vegetation in the park as part of a renovation project. One aim of the project is to interpret the confluence of the Mississippi and St. Croix rivers as natural areas rich in both environmental and historical stories.
