Like many communities in Northern Wisconsin, the railroad played a role in the growth of the village. New railroad tracks laid in 1882 linked Coleman and Pound, and by 1884 the railroad extended to Crivitz and Marinette. The rails were a means of personal travel and commerce, especially for the community’s early logging industry.
Trees and greenery remain important to the village, and you can enjoy the scenery while walking the two nature trails located in the village. The trails are open year-round.
The village of Coleman celebrated the 100th anniversary of its incorporation in 2003, and although the railroad industry has faded away, the rural community remains prosperous with its many local businesses, a thriving agricultural community, and local pride.
Coleman is the friendly community that calls itself “A Small Village with a BIG Heart!”
