The City of Schofield, just south of the City of Wausau, is a peaceful community bordered by the Eau Claire River and Lake Wausau (which is formed by the Wisconsin River). Schofield is home to a successful Business Park, while Grand Avenue and Schofield Avenue offer visitors a choice of specialty stores, restaurants, and lodging. 

One of Schofield’s landmarks is the Brooks and Ross Dam with two boat landings near the dam allowing access for canoes or kayaks and fishing opportunities for walleye, musky or panfish. 


The City of Schofield was originally spelled ‘Scholfield’ after Dr. William Scholfield who opened a sawmill in the area in the 1840s.
