See people enjoying the first ever Campfire Stories in Three Bridges Park and hearing stories from Jeff Crawford of the Forest County Potawatomi Community, Bill Davidson from Harley-Davidson, and Robin Olson of Rexnord Industries.

Milwaukee's Menomonee River Valley was homeland to the Potawatomi tribe and over time became an economic engine with tens of thousands of jobs. That activity damaged the land, but the community continues to bring it back to life through sustainable businesses, some of the largest entertainment destinations in the state, and acres of green space and parks.

Plum Media created this video from start to finish and recently renovated a historic building in the Valley for their offices. Thank you to Kristine Hinrichs Photography for the photographs used in the video.
