UW - Green Bay - Wisconsin's French Connections La Crosse--Epinal Sister Cities (1305 words)
Epinal is located in the northeast corner of France, and like La Crosse, which has its roots as a trading center alongside the Mississippi River, was founded (about 980 A.D. by the Bishops of Metz) because of its strategic location as a crossroads of many routes along the Moselle River.
Epinal has been French only since 1766; it lies at the foot of the Vosges Mountains next to the border between France and Germany, and the landscape bears a certain resemblance to La Crosse which is nestled between the Mississippi and the Bluffs.
Epinal is the home of the International Imagerie Museum and each year hosts the "Festival International de l'Image." Epinal's cultural life also boasts numerous top-level concerts and shows, including an international piano competition, the Music Festival and the Nancy Jazz Pulsations Festival.
