Marshfield's 150th in 2022


Marshfield will be celebrating 150 years in 2022. We trace our roots back to the construction of the Wisconsin Central Railroad between Stevens Point and Lake Superior in 1872. Louis Rivers built a two-room log hotel, functioning as a supply depot for the railroad, which was the first permanent structure in Marshfield.

Join us as we celebrate 150 years of history!
