About Prescott

Prescott WI
Prescott was settled in 1840 and was described as the "mouth of the St. Croix." It received its offcial name in 1851 in honor of Philander Prescott, a fur trapper who built a cabin on the site where the city now stands. Prescott held claim to 1,200 acres for soldiers from Fort Snelling,
Minn. Prescott quickly became a center for river shipping,
steamboat transportation and milling. Immigrants arrived via
the steamboats and settled lands Minnesota and Wisconsin.
