Wisconsin’s Counties - a Photo Portfolio - Waupaca County
Located in the East-Central part of the state, Waupaca County is a land of rolling hills, rushing rivers, rocky ravines, kettle lakes, sandy plains and prairies, rugged woodlands, farming towns and thriving villages. In the late 19th century, as the timber harvest dwindled and single-crop farming exhausted the soil's wheat-growing potential, the area's farmers turned to dairying. The establishment of cheese factories, with their demand for a steady supply of milk and the University of Wisconsin's dairy extension services revolutionized the area's agricultural industry and transformed Waupaca County into one of the nation's leading dairy producers. Waupaca County is partly in the Northern Highland Geographic Province and partly in the Central Plain.

Spotted this barn west of Waupaca, I believe on Hwy 54 in the western sector of the county. I am always delighted while driving the countryside of Wisconsin to see people’s displays of the American flag, whether fish or poor, they fly her proudly.
City Hall, New London. New London actually straddles Waupaca and Outagamie counties, but the city hall is located in Waupaca County.
We’re in Clintonville where Hemlock Street crosses the Pigeon River close to the town's center. This was a spectacular view of a grand weeping willow, one draped so beautifully over a river. Here is a zoomer of this wonderful tree.
