Prescott

Prescott is one of the oldest Wisconsin towns on the Mississippi, dating back to 1839. The city marks the juncture of the St. Croix River with the Big Muddy. From the Great River Road Visitor & Learning Center in Freedom Park, you can clearly see the line where the blue waters of the St. Croix join the dun-colored Mississippi. The Visitor Center is a fabulous introduction to the Upper Mississippi region using interactive exhibits, satellite maps, even an animated eagle to educate and fascinate.
