The city of La Crosse, the county seat of La Crosse
County, Wisconsin, is pleasantly situated at the confluence of the La
Crosse and Black Rivers with the Mississippi. It is the second city of
the state, both in population and commercial importance. For many years
its staple industry was the manufacture of lumber, but while that business
increases in volume, it is now overshadowed by the numerous diversified
industries which have gradually been introduced. The total value of goods
manufactured in 1891 was close upon $2,000,000, and of merchandise
handled, over $1,500,000, while the freight received and forwarded by rail
was about 500,000 tons.
La Crosse possesses many natural and acquired
advantages which make it a pleasant city for residence. Its churches,
schools, free library, water works, macadamized streets, shade trees,
background of bluffs, beautiful opera hall and all the modern improvements
in lighting and transit, contribute to the comfort and enjoyment of its
citizens to a degree which they fully appreciate, and of which they are
justly proud. Mr. R. Calvert, the Secretary of the Board of Trade,
invites inquires from any one seeking a location for either business or
residence, and will promptly rely to all.
