1. Historical Sites of Waupaca County. "Before Fremont received its name, the settlement was referred to as the Indian Crossing, or the Wolf River Crossing, as it was the only location in the 40-mile stretch between Winneconne and New London that was shallow enough for early travelers to cross the Wolf River."
