This statue is a conception of the "Cadotte" fur trader. Sculptor Jerry Holter of Clam Lake, Wisconsin, was commissioned to carve the figure from a solid section of native Northern White Pine, symbolic of the great lumbering industry of which the founder of Cadott Village, Robert Marriner, was a part.
In its history the village had a succession of wood industries including sawmills, an oak tannery, a barrel heading mill, shingle mill, a cheese box factory and a hub and spoke factory which employed many men. The cutting of great pines was followed by the present agricultural era.

This plaque is a gift of the Cadott Chamber of Commerce
Dedicated July 14, 1974
