Stanley is a city in Chippewa and Clark counties in Wisconsin. It was first settled in 1881 and is named for Lemuel C. Stanley. The city started out as a lumber town with the Northwestern Lumber Company opening a large mill there in 1891. In 1906 a fire started in one of the lumber company's buildings. The fire destroyed a large number of homes and businesses, however they soon rebuilt. In 1900 the lumber company opened a brickyard using clay found in the area. The city of Stanley annexed an area of Thorp in neighboring Clark county on 20 May 2002.
