At 170.7 m. is the junction with US 10 (see Tour 18); between this junction and the Minnesota Line, State 29 and US 10 are one route.

PRESCOTT, 171.6 m. (702 alt., 755 pop.) (see Tour 18), borders the Mississippi. US 10 and State 29 cross the Minnesota Line, 172 m., by a BRIDGE (toll: 150¢ for driver and car; 50¢ for each additional passenger; children under .12 free), 16 miles southeast of St. Paul, Minnesota.

The lake and river were dotted with Indian fishermen when Colonel A. Edwards passed in a canoe in 1818, en route to Chicago from Green Bay; for years after his passage the harbor was a stopover station on the month-long journey between the cities. As Wisconsin grew and new paths were cut through the wilderness, Manitowoc became in turn a lumber camp, a fishing town, a shipbuilding center, and finally the commercial and industrial capital of Manitowoc County. Though ships and shipping are not so important as they once were, Manitowoc
