THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Peshtigo Princess Again Has Tours on Flowage
The Peshtigo Princess is docked at the Peshtigo River Resort and Supper Club at N18967 Peshtigo River Lane, Crivitz. Owned by Peshtigo River Tours, it does scenic boat tours on the High Falls Flowage. The boat was custom built for the flowage in 1981 by a company in La Crosse, and was called the Peshtigo Princess which ran tours from the early 1980s to 1996 when the owner had health problems.
Last year the owner called the home improvement company of Chuck and Sharon Grammentz to do some work for him, so Chuck gave him a bid. When Chuck returned home, not only got the job, but purchased the old retired business. Chuck said he saw potential in getting the business up and running.
After nearly a year of hard work, rewiring, sandblasting, painting, and putting a new roof on, the Peshtigo Princess was back in operation on June 7th of this year. There are tours twice a day on the High Falls Flowage, Tuesday thru Saturday. and Sunday and Monday are reserved for private tours.
