Situated along the Wisconsin River in the heart of the state,
Mosinee is a product of central Wisconsin's prolific lumbering
era of the early 1800s. Dense forests of white pine dominated
the countryside. Sawmills sprang up to manufacture the harvested
lumber. With the sawmills came settlers, grist mills, tanneries,
and other businesses that combined to make a community.
Originally known as Little Bull Falls, the city's name was
changed to Mosinee when it was chosen for the site of a post
office in 1857.
Minutes from Wausau, the region's economic hub, Mosinee offers
the best of both worlds: small-town living with close proximity
to the area's best shopping, dining, entertainment, art
festivals, and recreational and cultural opportunities. The
Central Wisconsin Regional Airport provides connections to
Minneapolis, Chicago, Detroit and Milwaukee.
Lakes, rivers and recreational areas provide year-round
enjoyment, from downhill and cross-country skiing in the
winter, to boating and swimming in the summer, to year-round
fishing. The annual Christmas parade and Fourth of July
Festival and parade are favorite seasonal events that draw
crowds from surrounding communities.
