Neillsville is a city in Clark County in the U.S. state of Wisconsin. The population was 2,463 at the 2010 census. It is the county seat.HistoryThe Ojibwa were the earliest known residents of the Neillsville area.The first settlers of European descent in the area were James O'Neill and his party, who arrived around 1845, looking for a location to build a sawmill along the Black River. The city was named in honor of O'Neill, as was O'Neill Creek, which runs through the center of the city and drains into the Black River.In 1854, O’Neill’s Mill, as Neillsville was originally called, was selected as the county seat of Clark County.Neillsville was platted on April 14, 1855 and incorporated in April 1882.Neillsville is where noted architect William L. Steele died. Poor health had forced Steele to retire from architecture in late 1946, leaving his eldest son William L. Steele, Jr. and partner Josiah D. Sandham in charge of the practice. Steele had come to Neillsville to live with one of his daughters, Sallie (Mrs. Thomas S. Noble, Jr.), and died at her house on March 4, 1949.Neillsville is featured in 1995 comedy movie Tommy Boy featuring Chris Farley and David Spade. When Paul (Rob Lowe), Tommy's Stepbrother, changes the orders in the shipping computer he changes the order for Nelson Automotive located in Neillsville, Wisconsin. He changes the order from overnight delivery to 2 week delivery. This eventually leads to the downfall of the family owned Callahan auto business which forces Tommy Callahan III (Chris Farley) to take drastic measures. It is also rumored that Neillsville pops up in the deleted scenes of the movie.
