Kinnickinnic is an Ojibwe word meaning “what is mixed” and describes the landscape and residents of this St. Croix County, WI Township.
The Kinnickinnic River, nationally known for trout fishing, starts here before flowing through River Falls and into the St. Croix River. Farmland, pasture, streams and rocky bluffs make up the landscape that is home to 1,600 residents; some tracing their roots back to early settlers and others who are newer to the area, drawn by its natural beauty and close poximity to the Minneapolis/St. Paul metropolitan area. It’s the best of both worlds.
There has been an addition to the December 1 town board meeting, item h of New Business, Petition for County Aid for culvert on Evergreen Drive, 50% aid, discussion and action. This did not make the paper as dates were shorted to accomodate Thanksgiving Holiday. See the revised agenda under Town Board button.
