Peshtigo Harbor

Peshtigo Harbor, at the mouth of the Peshtigo River, was first settled about 1839 when a building was constructed to house men handling lumber for shipment from the mill operated by J. H. Levenworth in Peshtigo. After William B. Ogden established the Peshtigo Company and a railroad was extended to the harbor, a company town was created there. This village was extant from 1867 to 1897.
