Few people had as great an impact on Wasau/Central Wisconsin as Walter McIndoe. When McIndoe arrived in the late 1840s, the area was called Big Bull Falls. He played a major role in renaming the town Wausau, a Chippewa word meaning a far away place, and became known himself as the Father of Wausau. McIndoe was also instrumental in establishing Marathon County on February 9, 1850. At that time, the county stretched all the way to Lake Superior, and Wausau was named the county seat. Today, Marathon County is the largest of Wisconsin’s 72 counties and continues to prosper from the efforts of those in the past. YAWKEY HOUSE MUSEUM The Cyrus and Alice Yawkey house, a 1900/1901 Classical Revival styled house, was designed by Milwaukee architects Van Ryn and de Gelleke. In 1907 the Yawkeys hired architect George W. Maher to remodel and add to the house. The private home was donated to the Historical Society in 1954 by their only child, Leigh and her three daughters. A recent fundraising effort enabled a multi-million-dollar renovation to be completed in the spring of 2008. The first and second floors of the home, the carriage house and the formal gardens have been returned to their original splendor. The Yawkey House is a fine example of a wealthy lumberman’s house between the years 1908–1915. It features beautiful stained-glass windows, art glass lighting fixtures and many original Yawkey furnishings. A small entrance fee is charged for non-members of the Society. The house, which was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974, is open year round. The formal garden, complete with pergola, pond and fountain is open to the public from April to October. The garden is the site for many weddings during those months. WOODSON HISTORY CENTER Across the street at 410 McIndoe Street is the Historical Society’s administrative building. This lovely brick house was built in 1914 for the Yawkey’s daughter Leigh and her husband Aytchmonde P. Woodson. This house was also designed by George W. Maher. After both of the Yawkeys had died, the Woodsons moved to Highland Park Boulevard and sold their house to the Immanuel Baptist congregation. The church added a bell tower and a sanctuary to the back of the house in 1956. The historical Society purchased the Woodson House in 1955, and today it contains the library archives, artifacts and exhibits. Hours for both locations are Tue–Thu 9am to 4:30pm and weekends from 1pm to 4:30pm. 715-842-5750, www.marathoncountyhistory.com. THE ANDREW WARREN HISTORIC DISTRICT Located on the northeast edge of downtown Wausau, The Andrew Watten Historic District has been on the National Register of Historic Places since 1984. Its namesake is Andrew Warren, a sawmill owner, who in 1853 bought all the land now comprising the heart of the Wausau Eastside. Today, the district owes its charm to the fine houses and homes maintained by the people who care deeply about this neighborhood. Of the 62 buildings in the 10-block Warren District, all but four are houses. Some splendid and some plain, the houses were built between 1868 and 1934. Styles include a diverse yet harmonious blend of late 19th century and early 20th century homes. Walk this district and you’ll find examples of Greek Revival, Italianate, Queen Anne, Classical Revival, and Prairie School architecture. THE EAST HILL East of the Warren District begins an even larger historic district, the East Hill District, named for the hill rising abruptly on the east side of the Wisconsin River valley. More than 100 houses covering a 30-block radius went up between 1874 and 1930, a time frame nearly the same as for the Warren District. There are Queen Annes, Colonial Revivals, Classical Revivals, Georgian Revivals, and Tudor Revivals among the many styles found here. A walk up and around and down East Hill can be done at a leisurely pace but Franklin Street is especially steep so you may prefer to drive. Except for the widely recognized Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum, the houses are private homes. Maps of the Andrew Warren District, and additional information on the history of Wausau and Marathon County, are available at the Marathon County Historical Society, 715-848-6143 or at the Friends of Wausau Historic Landmarks, 715848-6143.

#visitwausau www.visitwausau.com | 715-355-8788 7 Today you can visit the newly renovated marker (2018) and then head to the Visitor Bureau to pick up your commemorative coin (shown above). The Visitors Bureau is still using the same book that was originally owned by the Gesicki’s and receives thousands of new signatures each year. It all started in 1969, when Marathon County erected a marker and made the surrounding area a county park—the smallest park in the state. Little did they know that this marker today would be a popular destination for both locals and visitors. 227460 Shrike Avenue Wausau, WI 54401 715-355-8788 www.visitwausau.com For additional information, visit https://bit.ly/2XAROt4 or www.visitwausau.com. Latitude and Longitude Latitude: Latitude is the angular distance on Earth measured North or South of the equator (0 latitude) in degree, minutes, and seconds. The equator is considered the longest latitude line on earth measuring 24,901.55 miles. Longitude: Longitude is the angular distance on Earth measured East or West of the meridian at Greenwich, England (0 longitude) in degrees, minutes, and seconds. Longitude lines run from the North Pole to the South Pole. The latitude/longitude coordinate system uses angular measurements to describe a position on the surface of the earth. The system is used worldwide and is primarily used by mariners and aviators. It has been in use since Ptolemy used it in his first world map in 150 CE. Make sure you visit the exact center of the North/ West hemisphere and become a member of the official “45x90 Club.” The 45 x 90 Geographical Marker in Poniatowski is unique, as it is the only one of four such spots on earth that is easily accessible. The other location in the northern hemisphere is in the mountains of China and the two southern locations are at the bottom of an ocean. Take a walk through the skinniest park in Wisconsin to view the marker, then head to the Visitor Center in downtown Wausau to sign the official book and receive your free commemorative coin. A crushed-gravel walking path leads you 1,000 feet from the parking lot to the marker site. To find the marker, enter “45x90 Geographical Marker” in your GPS map, or go to visitwausau.com for driving directions. 45°x90° GEOGRAPHICAL MARKER #visitwausau www.visit ausau.com 715-3 5-878 7

#visitwausau www.visitwausau.com | 715-355-8788 9 Find a favorite fishing spot to reel in that catch of a lifetime. There is nothing better on a warm sunny day then finding a great fishing hole. Be it on the rippling water or from a grassy river bank. There are plenty of line dipping opportunities on the Wisconsin River that flows between the banks in six of our seven communities. The Eau Claire River and the Rib River merge with the Wisconsin River to form the uniquely shaped Lake Wausau, home to many trophy fish, right in the heart of the Wausau Area. Picturesque Half Moon Lake just a few miles down the river is a fisherman’s haven, surrounded by the beauty of nature and loaded with a variety of fish species. Musky, walleye, crappie, northern pike, catfish, bluegill, bass, sunfish and yellow perch are present in most of the lakes, rivers and reservoir in the central Wisconsin area. So whether you are on the hunt for a massive musky that will fight you to the end of slabs of crappies and bluegills that will keep your bobber diving under water, you will not be disappointed with fishing in central Wisconsin. There are over 16 boat landings between Wausau and Knowlton giving you access to The Wisconsin River, Rib River, Eau Claire River, Lake Wausau, Half Moon Lake, Mosinee Flowage, Big Eau Pleine Reservoir and Lake DuBay. See locations of boat landings marked on Wausau Area Map. Some area boat landings require a daily landing fee and seasonal landing permits are available from the Marathon County Parks Department, 212 River Drive, Wausau, WI, 715-261-1550. Favorite spots for pitching a line from shore include handicap accessible piers to parks with playground equipment just in case little fishermen get antsy. Fishing Piers with handicap accessibility are located at DC Everest Park (the south end of 3rd Avenue), Gilbert Park (North 6th Street 9 blocks north of Highway 52 intersection, on the west side of the street) and along the west side of the McCleary Bridge which connects Rib Mountain Drive and 17th Avenue. Some of the best shore fishing in the Wausau Area is below the Schofield Dam (just off Drott Street), Blue Gill Park (Rib Mountain Drive to Parrot Lane to the east), Oak Island Park (River Drive) and Gilbert Park (North 6th Street). You may fish from shore at any boat landing or park in the Wausau Area, Mission Lake or Eau Pleine County Park. Remember to always have permission to cross private property when seeking your destination. Hard water fishing is phenomenal and very popular on these same bodies of water during the winter months. The progression from clothe-laden bodies on buckets, to little communities of ice shanties appear as soon as the ice is solid. This is totally different fishing experience. Cook outs, football passing, TV watching, until the flags pop up. Life stops as everyone rushes to the hole in hopes of pulling out a whopper. You don’t want to miss this fun. TROUT FISHING If solitude, nature, clear cool water and hip boots are your main agendas for landing a colorful trout then you will want to explore one of the many streams in Marathon County. For a listing of over 33 trout streams with classifications and maps, go to www.dnr.wi.gov. For more information on regulations and buying a license, contact the Department of Natural Resources by calling 715-359-4522 or visit www.dnr.wi.gov. FISHING
10 Wausau/Central Wisconsin 2022 Visitor Guide #visitwausau Set in the Wisconsin River Valley, Wausau and Central Wisconsin has great water recreation. There are many boat landings that provide convenient access to the water on the Wisconsin River, its tributaries and area lakes. The area lakes provide plenty of enjoyment for waterskiing, especially in the open waters of Lake Wausau, Lake DuBay and the Eau Pleine Flowage. Take an evening to learn a few pointers from the Water Walkers Waterski Team when they perform at two area lakes. If you are looking for a place to drop anchor and fish, make sure to check with Hooksetters Guide Service at www.hooksetters.biz. They can point out all the best places to find different varieties of fish. Visit www.visitwausau.com for additional information on fishing and boating. Whether you are interested in an all-day canoe or kayak trip or just want a few hours out on the water, the Wisconsin River is the place to be. That all-day trip starts in Merrill and ends in Wausau. All along, the water moves slowly, shallow in some places, very deep in others. Only a few minor rapids lay along the way and those can be portaged if necessary. The trip is about 20.5 miles. Select one of several alternate starting points. A rule of thumb to determine travel time is to figure two miles per hour on the river. Please note that areas adjacent to the landings may be private property. Please be respectful of landowners’ property and privacy. Find more information online at www.wvic.com. The scenic Wisconsin River and Lake Wausau are part of a major canoe route and the city of Wausau has one of only two urban whitewater race courses in the country. The Domtar canoe portage around the Rothschild project allows canoeists to continue down the river to enjoy some of the Central Wisconsin’s finest canoeing. Wausau is home to a world-class canoe and kayak competition site at Whitewater Park in downtown Wausau. The park hosts some of the world’s largest competitions, including 3 major events, 10 recreational releases, paddling camps, training clinics, learn-to-kayak classes and volunteer opportunities. Paddlers of all ages, abilities, and experience now have an easier way to launch on the Wisconsin River in Wausau. A new handicapped-accessible launch was installed on the east shore at 1700 River Drive off of East Wausau Avenue, just north of Bridge Street. BOATING, CANOEING & KAYAKING

14 Wausau/Central Wisconsin 2022 Visitor Guide #visitwausau ONE PARK WITH AN ENDLESS SUPPLY OF RECREATIONAL POSSIBILITIES One of the oldest rock formations on earth, Rib Mountain stands proudly in the middle of Wausau/Central Wisconsin, offering a place to enjoy nature and wonder at its spectacle. The name “Rib” comes from a combination of the mountain’s history and the area’s Native American heritage. There is evidence that rock formations, estimated to be a billion years old, were at one time submerged below a great inland sea. A great upheaval, caused by tremendous pressures within the earth formed Rib Mountain, as well as other hills in the area. As the fourth highest peak in Wisconsin, Rib Mountain has a lot to offer visitors. The view is particularly breathtaking from the observation tower, a 60-foot structure that serves as a perch for those who climb its winding stairs high above the tree tops. With 1,500-plus acres, the park boasts a well-maintained network of hiking and nature trails throughout the wooded area.
