LOCATION: Antigo, Wisconsin

EMPLOYER: Langlade Hospital

POSITION: Staff Pharmacist

WHY YOU’LL LOVE ITAntigo was founded in 1878 and is the Langlade County Seat. The name “Antigo” comes from the Chippewa Indian name for the river that flows through the area, “Nequi-Antigo-sebi” meaning “spring river” or “evergreen”.

Antigo was born and lived in the mind of Francis Deleglise years before the first tree was felled to be hewn into a log for a cabin.  Mr. Deleglise was a prospector and timber cruiser for Appleton lumber companies.  In his travels along the newly made Military Road and all of what lied between that and the Wisconsin River, he marveled at the wealth of the pinery that was standing, waiting for the taking. In the 1870’s, the land was only occupied by Indians and a few traders with horse and foot trails that mostly followed rivers such as the Eau Claire and Wolf.  Into this land came two types of men; the Lumber Barons who saw fortunes to be made with the towering Eastern White Pine and men such as Deleglise who envisioned the rich land giving root to generations of families. The log cabin in which Deleglise lived is preserved and on display at the Langlade County Museum.

In the early part of the 1900s, Antigo was best known for its sawmills. At the turn of the millennium, the city’s economy had a balance of industry and agriculture. High on the list are potatoes, dairy products, fur, shoes, fertilizer, steel and aluminum products, along with the lumber and wood product industries established in the earlier years.

Home to 543 lakes, 225 streams, almost 400 miles of trout streams, and 300 spring ponds, Langlade County is perfect for all water enthusiasts. The waters let you choose many different adventures. If you prefer a drier adventure, take advantage of the 127,000 acres of public owned land that make an amazing display for Langlade County’s woods! Maple, hemlock and birch forests make an impressive backdrop for the diverse, year-round activities. Langlade County is rich with large and small wildlife. Encounter wildlife of all sizes while taking a walk through the picturesque outdoors.

Water, Woods, and Wildlife come together to make Langlade County an impressive place to visit and live!
