Geocache Description:

Wisconsin Historical Marker 108

This three-mile canal is the oldest and longest in use in Wisconsin. Canal, dam and powerhouse cost the La Crosse Water Power Company $1,500,000. It required 700 men and three steam dredges and was Wisconsin's largest power project in the early 1900's. Mississippi Valley Public Service Company owned it about 40 years. It is now owned by Northern States Power Company.
