Peshtigo

Known as the “City Rebuilt from Ashes,” Peshtigo was the site of the worst fire in North American history. Today, the city offers a popular museum where visitors can learn more about that 1871 fire that claimed at least 1,200 lives. In addition to resources dedicated to educating current generations about the city’s history, Peshtigo is a great place to enjoy northern Wisconsin’s great outdoors. Camping, fishing and hiking are just a few of the ways to enjoy your visit.
