Description
Relations with Eau Claire's upstream neighbor, Chippewa Falls, were not always amicable in the days when rival logging companies from both towns drove their cuts down the eau claire (“clear water”) of the Chippewa River. A number of midnight log drives and battles took place before cooperation supplanted warfare. When the timber was exhausted, Eau Claire, like Chippewa Falls, turned to diversified manufacturing.
Eau Claire's position at the confluence of the Chippewa and Eau Claire rivers enhances its status as a gateway to the resort areas of northwestern Wisconsin. Outdoor activities, such as bicycling, hiking, fishing and skiing, abound throughout the year.
