Fox-Wisconsin Portage Site
The original portage (carrying place) is a narrow strip of land between the north-flowing Fox and the south-flowing Wisconsin Rivers. Pierre Marquette and Louis Joliet recorded using the portage on June 14, 1673. By the 1780s, it became a rendezvous point for the trading of furs and supplies. Native Americans controlled and utilized the portage for hundreds of years until the Treaty of 1828. The route, now city street Wauona Trail, is listed on the National Register.
Wauona Trail runs from Highway 33 to Highway 16/51 in Portage.
