WISCONSIN HOMETOWN STORIES

Wisconsin Hometown Stories: Portage Memories

  • Aired: 10/29/2008
  • 29:04
  • Rating: TV-G
Because of its strategic location between the Saint Lawrence and Mississippi rivers, many indigenous tribes passed through Portage to trade furs, first with the French, then the British and finally the Americans. Portage Memories is a celebration of the character of a town, its residents and the stories they have to tell about their past as a mirror of the entire state.
