WISCONSIN HOMETOWN STORIES

Wisconsin Hometown Stories: La Crosse

  • Aired: 05/24/2010
  • 58:30
  • Rating: TV-G
La Crosse was able to develop into one of Wisconsin’s largest cities because of a favorable conjunction of geographical facts. First is the breadth of fairly level ground between the river channel and the bluffs. It is wider here than in most places on the Wisconsin side of the Mississippi and, although divided by the La Crosse River and extensive wetlands, the prairie had room for a city to grow.
