1. The Great Northern Pine of Wisconsin Marker
Inscription. This statue is a conception of the “Cadotte” fur trader. Sculptor Jerry Holter of Clam Lake, Wisconsin, was commissioned to carve the figure from a solid section of native Northern White Pine, symbolic of the great lumbering industry of which the founder of Cadott Village, Robert Marriner, was a part. In its history the village had a succession of wood industries including sawmills, an oak tannery, a barrel heading mill, shingle mill, a cheese box factory and a hub and spoke factory which employed many men. The cutting of great pines was followed by the present agricultural era.

This plaque is a gift of the Cadott Chamber of Commerce

Also see . . .  Cadott's long, rich history started with a fur-trading family. In 1865, Robert Marriner built a dam at Cadotte Falls. He established a village near where Michel Cadotte had set up his trading post. Marriner intended to honor the French-Indian fur traders with the name of his village. But for some reason, the name village was shortened to Cadott. (Submitted on July 19, 2018, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.)
