The "Sugar Bushes" were the common name for the areas of dense hardwood—mostly maple—forest to the north and west of Peshtigo. This area included the Upper Sugar Bush (Porterfield area); the Middle Sugar Bush (Harmony); and the Lower Sugar Bush (May Corner) immediately to the west of Peshtigo.

[Statistics on the heavy loss of life here.]

The image is artist Mel Kishner's interpretation of what it might have been like for a farm family in the Sugar Bush during the fire.
