The city of Portage marks an ancient overland portage that was a strategic link between the Fox and Wisconsin Rivers. In 1828, Fort Winnebago was built to protect the site. Thirty years later, a two mile canal was hand dug joining the two rivers. Today, visitors can tour a restored section of the canal. Tours of the Surgeon’s Quarters and the Indian Agency House, all that’s left of old Fort Winnebago, is also offered. The local museum honors the city’s most famous daughter, Pulitzer prize-winning author Zona Gale.
