Wausau is considered the dominant economic force of its region, that's why Wisconsin Public Television will feature it during a special upcoming documentary.
Wausau will be the subject of "Wisconsin: Hometown Stories."
Researchers are getting help from the Marathon County Historical Society to paint the picture of how Wausau began and where it is today.
The society's librarian, Gary Gisselman, is curious how the hour-long documentary will turn out.
"I've been involved with the history of Marathon County since I've been here and I think that there's a lot of unique stories and this will be great fun in trying to narrow down all the history of Marathon County," Gisselman said.
Though he has no control over what will be featured, he believes the documentary could cover Wausau's lumber history, its red granite, and the Fromm Brothers Fur Farm.
The documentary will include interviews with local historians, old photographs and archive materials and videography of Wausau landmarks.
It's expected to air sometime in 2010.
