The village of Necedah, Wisconsin is located at the base of a high cliff on the Yellow River, a few miles from the river's mouth, and is opposite the famous Petenwell Bluff. Petenwell Rock is popular among serious climbers and is perhaps Wisconsin's finest sport climbing area with beautiful sandstone cliffs and boulders.
The name "Necedah" comes from the Ho Chunk Native Americans who inhabited the area before the arrival of European settlers and means "Land of the Yellow Waters", a reference to the Yellow River. For early settlers Necedah was an important logging town and was the first place in Juneau County to have manufacturing interests.
Not far from Necedah is the Necedah National Wildlife Refuge, a 44,000 acre area permanent wildlife refuge established in 1939 in what is called the Great Central Wisconsin Swamp - the largest wetland bog in the state. The Wildlife Refuge receives nearly 150,000 visitors annually.
