In the middle of it all is the City of Schofield. Just south of Wausau, Schofield is bordered by the Eau Claire River and Lake Wausau. With its convenient access to the Wisconsin River, Schofield is attractive to boating, fishing and canoeing enthusiasts.

Like most of these communities, Schofield’s existence was determined by where a sawmill was built. Dr. William Scholfield erected a sawmill known as the Scholfield Mill in the 1840s. Later on, as a village, the “l” was dropped.

Schofield is home to a successful Business Park on Ross Avenue while Grand Avenue and Schofield Avenue offer visitors a choice of specialty stores, restaurants, and lodging.
