Overview


Long before Jacob Leinenkugel, Edward Rutledge, and

William Irvine were associated with Chippewa Falls,

Native American people hunted, fished, and gathered

the abundant food supplies of the Chippewa area. Through

the medium of historic photographs, this book captures the

cultural, economic, political, and social history of Chippewa

Falls, Wisconsin, from the mid-1800s to the present day.

These pages bring to life the people, events, and

industries which helped to shape and transform Chippewa

Falls. With more than 200 vintage images, Chippewa Falls,

Wisconsin includes the largest sawmill in the world under

one roof, some of the earliest residents of the community,

along with century-old nationally renowned businesses.

There was rarely a dull moment in the development of

this community's downtown. The Chippewa Falls Main

Street program, operating since 1989, has created a grass

roots volunteer driven movement to revitalize downtown

Chippewa Falls. Over the years, the downtown has

undergone renovation projects and investments totaling

more than $57 million.
