Riverwatch History

In 1848 the United States Government sold a parcel of property on the Fox River in Oshkosh to Phillip Wright. After passing through various owners, William Campbell, in 1867, started a sawmill on the site. His son, James Campbell I, became involved in the business and joined with others to form the Campbell & Cameron Company in 1890.

Badger Lumber and Manufacturing Company bought the business in 1915 and began manufacturing furniture, kitchen tables, ironing boards and smoking stands. On January 3, 1923, fire ravaged the plant but by the end of that same year, production was back to the previous levels.

After the fire, Joseph F. Robineau, who started Dearborn Company in Chicago, bought Badger Lumber. Thomas Ginsberg took over as president in 1967 and ran the company until it's closing in 1982.

Local developer, Terry Eisch, purchased the site in 1983 and immediately began demolition. By 1986 the site was transformed into 58 waterfront living units. Mr. Eisch rented out the units and in 2005, the complex was converted to condominiums.
