PARK FALLS, WI

Located in the pristine northwoods of Wisconsin, Park Falls is the site of a 400,000-square-foot Weather Shield manufacturing facility.

With a population of 3,110 people, surrounded by miles of natural habitat that is perfect for wildlife, this city has been deemed the ruffed grouse capital of the world. Once the land of Ojibway Native Americans, Park Falls was founded by two Frenchmen who settled along the North Fork of the Flambeau River in 1876. Originally called Muskellunge Falls, the city was renamed Park Falls after the owner of the first band-saw mill in northern Wisconsin thought the area around Muskellunge Falls resembled a park.

Each of the four seasons in Park Falls has something unique to offer. During the summer, it's boating and camping, which gives way to snowmobiling or sledding in the winter.

Carving its way through the city and surrounding forestland, the Flambeau River, French for "flaming torch," is one of the few remaining whitewater canoe streams in the Midwest. The route is complete with established campsites, accessible only by boat, for canoeists to enjoy.

Park Falls is also headquarters for the Chequamegon Nicolet National Forest. Along with Weather Shield, Park Falls is home to several manufacturing industries. An abundance of forests and a large river are the perfect combination to produce paper, which still holds a big presence in the city today.
