Prairie du Chien

Prairie du Chien is the oldest European settlement on the Upper Mississippi River. Located just above the confluence of the Wisconsin River, this fertile prairie was a major gathering place for regional Indian tribes and for the fur traders who followed. Many epic frontier stories were played out here. Learn more at the Fort Crawford Museum and at the Villa Louis, one of ten properties operated by the Wisconsin Historical Society.
Situated in the heart of the Upper Mississippi Wildlife Refuge, the area offers pristine hiking, boating, fishing and bird watching. Just south of the city, magnificent views of the Mississippi and Wisconsin Rivers can be enjoyed from the 500-foot bluffs of Wyalusing State Park.
