"Poy Sippi is a bonny place
It stands betwixt two hills
And through it runs the river pine
Which drives the Hawley mills."

From the book Those Dodd Girls of Poy Sippi by Dorothy Dodds Rogers

The Pine River was called "Poygan Sippi" by Potawatomie Indians, because it flowed into Poygan Lake. The name was contracted to Poy Sippi. It is said to be a corruption of an Indian word meaning "Sioux river." [Source: The Romance of Wisconsin Place Names.]

Poy Sippi has often been described as a "little Swiss village" because of its location between two high hills. During any season, one cannot help but be aware of the beauty of these tree-covered hills when driving into Poy Sippi from either a north or south direction.
