History

Presque Isle, which means 'Almost an Island' was a name given to this area by a french priest about 300 years ago. The era of logging brought development in the early 1900s. The Vilas County Lumber Company was built in 1905 by J.J. Foster and the community it supported was called Fosterville. In 1910 William S. Winegar bought the Foster mill and the town was renamed Winegar. By 1933 the logging industry was winding down and the mill was closed however the town remained and managed to grow. The old mill grounds were transformed into the world's largest walleye rearing ponds. The village name changed again in 1955 reflecting its natural composition as Presque Isle.
