Price County, Wisconsin -- Phillips, Park Falls, Prentice, Fifield, Catawba, Kennan, Ogema Housing & Utilities
"I live in Price County for a wide range of reasons.  The biggest reason is because my family has established their roots here.  Beyond family, I am here because Phillips Medisize (formerly Phillips Plastics) afforded me the opportunity to advance in the company.  If you apply yourself, this area provides opportunities.  In addition to offering employment opportunities, housing is affordable.  To own a similar home in a large city, I would have had to pay more than double the cost of my house.  Also, I would be remiss if I didn't mention the outdoor recreation provided by Price County.  There are thousands of acres of public hunting land, as well as lakes and streams, to enjoy.  From fishing to kayaking and enjoying water sports, the county offers a wealth of options for outdoor enthusiasts.  Finally, the schools are a great place for my daughters to receive a quality education as well as partake in a wide range of extra-curricular activities.  It's difficult to sum up why I live in Price County, because there are so many great reasons to live, work, and play here."
