Myrick was disappointed to find that because many fur traders were already well-entrenched there, there were no openings for him in the trade.As a result, he decided to establish a trading post upriver at the then still unsettled site of Prairie La Crosse. The spot Myrick chose to build his trading post proved ideal for settlement.The population density was 2,501.5 per square mile (965.6/km²).There were 22,628 housing units at an average density of 1,102.7 per square mile (425.8/km²).According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 22.54 square miles (58.38 km Surrounding the relatively flat prairie valley where La Crosse lies are towering 500 ft bluffs, one of the most prominent of which is Grandad Bluff (mentioned in Life on the Mississippi by Mark Twain), which has an overlook of the three states region.This feature typifies the topography of the Driftless Area in which La Crosse sits.
By 1855, La Crosse had grown in population to nearly 2,000 residents, leading to its incorporation in 1856.
It was a center of the lumber industry, for logs cut in the interior of the state could be rafted down the Black River toward sawmills built in the city.
La Crosse also became a center for the brewing industry and other manufacturers that saw advantages in the city's location adjacent to major transportation arteries, such as the Mississippi River and the railroad between Milwaukee and St. Around the turn of the 20th century, the city also became a center for education, with three colleges and universities established in the city between 18.

La Crosse is located on the western border of the midsection of Wisconsin, on a broad alluvial plain along the east side of the Mississippi River.
