BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH OF CHIPPEWA (CITY), WISCONSIN
This city, with so many possibilities, which is so much larger on the map than it appears when you get there, has a post office, with F. G. Stanley as Postmaster, and there is a semi-weekly mail. There is a saw and shingle mill owned by Stanley Bros. & Co.; a blacksmith shop and a store.
This is a little village of residences a short distance down the river on the opposite side.
THE SOUTH SIDE.
The depot is on the south side, and there is a grocery store, a butcher shop, and quite a number of residences. With the accession of business which the new railway will bring, this will be a thriving place after a time. Saints Rest, Kismet Lodge, Crescent Cottage, Lucky Lodge, etc. — Summer resorts with the above names, owned by Col. Ginty, Gen. Richardson, L. M. Newman, Dan Seymour, and others, of like appellations, belonging to various parties at the Falls, are located about twenty-five miles from town, on the lakes elsewhere alluded to.
