    About the Stevens Point Area

    Nestled in the center of Wisconsin, at the crossroads of Highway 10 and Interstate 39, learn more about why the Stevens Point Area is a fun place to visit and a wonderful place to live.

    Covering more than 800 square miles in Central Wisconsin, most of Portage County is rural offering year-round recreational opportunities, dotted with small communities. When Stevens Point was first founded in 1858, the logging industry and trading posts defined the location. With help from the Wisconsin River, the railroad, and rich soil, the area continued to prosper. Now, the region is home to 27 municipalities with a population of over 70,000.
