Brief Area History:

Trego history

Trego traces its beginning back to the railroad. The tracks still go through the outskirts of town.

As most communities in the area were created in part by the railroads and a need for logging in the 1800s, Trego is no exception. With its roots in contributing to building and heating materials, the area is now popular for recreational activities. People from all around come to this area for fishing the more than 900 lakes, or hunting in the wilderness, or the unique restaurants and tourist attractions, and anyone looking for the peace and quiet of northern Wisconsin. Even during the cold winters, snowmobilers, skiers, ice fishermen and hockey players are drawn to our area.
