Menomonie's motto is "progressive yet traditional." It describes the mix youthful innovation, traditional Wisconsin culture, and a rich historical past that make up the town and area. In the past, Menomonie was the center of the lumber trade of the area, sitting at a wide spot in the Red Cedar River that was dammed early on to create the beginnings of Lake Menomin, on the earliest maps simply called the "log jam."
One of the city's early first citizens James Huff Stout founded what was then the Stout Manual Training School, which later, through many name changes, became the University of Wisconsin-Stout. The presence of the university brings that unique, college town vibe to Menomonie along with many arts and cultural activities.
