Price County, Wisconsin
Wonderful Quality of Life in the Northwoods Located in Wisconsin's northwoods, Price County is the fifth largest in land area of the state's 72 counties.  The area is known for its spectacular natural beauty, including vast areas of national, state, and county forestland. Price County was created in 1879 and is named for W.T. Price, a local logger and president of the Wisconsin State Senate.  The lands that became Price County were a part of the vast pine covered area of northern Wisconsin and provided necessary materials for the expansions of the western frontier and growth for our nation. The area is home to approximately 15,000 residents in small cities, villages, and townships.  Major industries include manufacturing, wood, paper, & plastic products, farming, tourism, and health care. Residents of Price County enjoy a relaxed lifestyle where they experience peace of mind on a daily basis.  The area offers quality educational opportunities, unlimited outdoor recreation, and a very reasonable cost of living.  There is always plenty to do, especially in regard to sporting and hunting. Phillips has an indoor community pool with Olympic-sized lanes for lap swimmers, swimming lessons, and open swim.  Elk Lake Park provides a walking trail on the lake, and areas to play soccer, basketball, and volleyball. Park Falls has an outdoor community pool used for lap swimming, swimming lessons, and open swim in the summer months.  Park Falls also has a Recreational Arena featuring hockey, open skating, and other area events.
