A fur trading post since the seventeenth century, La Crosse was not officially established until 1856 as it became an important steamboat port along the river and a hub of the lumber industry. Once the La Crosse & Milwaukee Railroad was completed in 1858, the city blossomed as numerous breweries and educational facilities expanded the economy.
