A History of Fire- A Future to Inspire.



 Monument Dedication on October 8, 2012

The monument was erected at the edge of the new bridge near the river to honor those individuals who lost their lives from the horrible fire, and to the many veterans who have served the community. Many people sought refuge in the river and were saved from the great forest fire of October 8, 1871 which destroyed the city of Peshtigo and much of the surrounding area. The ceremony was hosted by the Peshtigo Historical Society with various speakers and Peshtigo High School music department.


Located on the Peshtigo River, the surrounding natural beauty and excellence in outdoor recreation of all kinds makes the Peshtigo area a popular travel destination. Known for superb fishing, hunting, snowmobiling, bicycling, and much more, Peshtigo is easy to get to by following Hwy. 41, taking exit 212 or 216.

The name "Peshtigo" is a Native American word from the Chippewa and Menominee tribes that lived in the area. Depending on who you talk to, it might mean "snapping turtle" or "wild goose."

Reborn from the ashes of America's deadliest fire, the city of Peshtigo is proud of its unique name and heritage.
