Polish Heritage Trail
Learn more about the Polish Heritage Trail, connecting you to the first Polish settlers in central Wisconsin. Tour the rolling, rural countryside in the Stevens Point Area to explore the self-guided Polish Heritage Trail, home to the first Polish rural settlement in Wisconsin, and the second in the United States.
Located on quiet, rural roads winding through the glacial terrain with its wooded countryside, lakes, and farmland are reminders of the Polish heritage of this area. The small communities, imposing churches and several quaint roadside shrines and crosses create a pastoral and spiritual landscape, not unlike the Kaszuby region in northern Poland from which the earliest Polish settlers came, beginning in 1857.
