St. Croix County WI

St. Croix County, nestled in the scenic northwestern region of Wisconsin, was officially established on August 3, 1840. It emerged from the vast territories of Crawford County, which, at the time, encompassed a significant portion of Wisconsin’s present-day geography. This county is a tribute to the St. Croix River, a vital waterway that forms part of its western boundary and serves as a natural divider between Wisconsin and Minnesota. The river itself was named by French explorers in the 17th century, with “Saint Croix” translating to “Holy Cross” in English, reflecting the European explorers’ practice of imbuing new lands and natural features with religious significance.
