Special Thank You to:

History of Dodge County More than 10,000 years ago, small bands of people entered what is now Dodge County on the edge of the receding glacier. As hunters and gatherers, early native Americans followed and hunted herds of large animals and gathered food stuffs. The river systems from the south were used by early inhabitants to reach the wildlife and other resources the county provided in abundance. Numerous sites within the county show evidence of the early inhabitants including stone tools, campsites and settlements, burial and effigy mounds, garden plots and paintings and carvings on rock outcrops and stones. The first white settlers were drawn for reasons of bountiful agricultural lands, with wheat, corn, oats, potatoes and apples being the primary crops. Wheat growing was later replaced with dairying. Before mass settlement and agricultural pursuits, Dodge County was covered mainly with forests, wetlands, prairie and oak savannas. Dodge County was created in 1836 and named in honor of Henry Dodge, then terr ritorial governor of Wisconsin. The Town of Victory was chosen as the County Seat. The Town of Victory was later renamed City of Juneau after Paul Juneau, the son of Solomon Juneau, founder of Milwaukee. In 1845 iron ore was discovered in Mayville and an iron ore works operated here for several decades until competition from mines in the Lake Superior region closed them. Sawmills and gristmills were widely distributed over Dodge County in the 1870's. In 1875, John Jossie, came from Switzerland, developed the variety of cheese known as “Brick”, and opened the first factory in the United States to produce brick cheese. The factory operated in Watertown until 1943. Dodge is a leading county in the production of cheese, barley, alfalfa, hay and peas for canning. Industries include the manufacture of wood products, shoes, metal products, lawn care equipment, magazines, stainless steel equipment and ice fishing equipment.

Lake Emily Lake Days Fishing Contest - Beaver Dam Lake

Sinissippi Lake

Beaver Dam Lake is the largest lake in Dodge County and the 16th largest in Wisconsin. The City of Beaver Dam is located on the southeast shore. Beaver Dam Lake covers approximately 6,600 acres, is 14 miles long, and has over 41 miles of shoreline. It is especially well suited for speedboating, sailing and provides excellent summer and winter fishing for northern pike, walleye, bass, catfish, bullhead, and a variety of panfish. Besides fishing, the lake is perfect for water-skiing, snowmobiling, ice skating and hunting. The city maintains a half a dozen lakeside parks, among which there are several with fishing piers and boat ramps. Picnic facilities for the general public are plentiful, as well as shoreline areas to enjoy the beauty of the changing seasons. Tahoe Park on Beaver Dam Lake is home to Beaver Dam's Lake Days celebration and the Beaverland Must-Ski's Water Show.

Sinissippi Lake is a haven for wildlife. The fisheries consist of northern pike, walleye, catfish and carp. A variety of waterfowl are either residents or visitors to the lake every year. American white pelicans, sandhill cranes, blue herons, Canada geese, eagles and others provide great opportunities for bird watching. Each season brings new activities and opportunities. The Lake Sinissippi Ski Club offers “Learn to Ski” programs every summer. The LSA 4th of July Lakefest and the Venetian Nite lighted boat parade in August highlight the summer events. Water skiing, swimming, wave runners, pontooning, kayaking, and canoeing are activities enjoyed all summer long. There are many places to explore with nine islands, backwaters and feeder creeks.

LAKES

Beaver Dam Lake

Lake Emily is a shallow, fertile lake located in the extreme northwest corner of Dodge County. The lake provides a quality fishery primarily of perch, bluegills, largemouth bass, and northern pike and receives heavy usage year round. Much of the lakeshore is developed with cottages and homes, except for the west side which is still undeveloped. A town-owned boat landing provides good fishing and boating access on the southern end of the lake. Lake Size: 268 Acres Maximum Depth: 17 Ft.

Lost Lake Lost Lake is located in west-central Dodge County. The lake is popular for fishing and hunting although freeze out conditions limit the fishery. Much of the shoreline consists of marshy areas. Boat ramps exist on the north and south sides of the lake as extensions of the town roads. Lake Size: 245 Acres Maximum Depth: 11 Ft.

You will find that the City of Columbus strives to preserve and promote its proud heritage.

Visit these websites for more information about our fine city www.columbuswichamber.com or www.cityofcolumbuswi.com

When visiting Columbus, make a point to stop in the state’s largest antique mall as well as other antique shops downtown, or in the numerr ous specialty & gift shops. Don’t leave town without dining at one of the supper clubs or restaurants or maybe take a break and enjoy an artisan beer at our local microbrewery located downtown. Located on five major highway corridors, Highways 151, 16, 60, 73 and 89, Columbus is also one of the few communities in Wisconsin offering Amtrak service. In other words, we’re an easy destination to get to and enjoy.

Wildlife, scenery and level surface provide safe, easy and enjoyable biking and hiking for all ages. Parking and trail access available at the southern trail head at Hwy 60 and the northern trail head on Rolling Meadows Drive in Fond du Lac and numerous points between. County and private campgrounds located nearby. A separate horse trail tread runs from Hwy 60. The trail can be opened for snowmobile and ATV use in winter.

Auto Tours

Snowmobile enthusiasts will find an interconnected system of more than 320 miles of groomed county snowmobile trails that traverse farm fields, woodlots, lowlands and the Wild Goose State Trail, with another 180 miles of unfunded “club-owned” trails available for use within the County. Trails provide easy access to trail systems in neighboring counties. The “clubowned” trails tend to serve more of the local users often connecting the county trails and populated areas that provide food, service and overnight facilities.

outdoor recreation

Dodge County opens 20 miles of ATV trails from December 1 through March 31. Riding is only permitted during that time when the County has officially declared the trail open. The ATV trail can be opened if there is sufficient ground freeze or snowbase to prevent damage to the trail surface. The trails are primarily located on the surfaced areas of Wild Goose State Trail and the designated ATV trail routes through Burnett and East Waupun. The ATV trail runs from the parking lot at Hwy. 60 north to Hwy. 49.

The gentle current you’ll find on the Rock and Crawfish rivers make them ideal for paddling. One of the most popular launches is Harnischfeger Park on the Rock River. Paddlers can travel upstream for 17 miles to Hustisford or downstream 25 miles to Watertown. Astico Park is a favorite launching point for paddling excursions on the scenic Crawfish River.

County Boundaries

DANE COUNTY

During the last Ice Age, which ended about 10,000 years ago, a massive ice sheet covered the entire county. The county’s topography was shaped by the advance and retreat of this ice mass. Glacial debris was deposited as ground moraine and other glacial formations, varying in thickness throughout the county from 100 to 300 feet in depth. There is approximately 400 feet of elevation change with the highest points reaching 1,200 feet above sea level in the northeast, to 800 feet above sea level in the southwestern portions of the county. The two most prominent topographic features in the county include the very flat, marsh areas, such as the Horicon Marsh, and the Niagara Escarpment, which rises 190 feet in some areas.

Watertown WHERE YOU’RE ALWAYS WELCOME

W

atertown’s many historic districts showcase our rich history and unique architecture. Over 120 buildings within the downtown business district are eligible for the National Historic Register.

OUR RICH HERITAGE The Octagon House Museum and the First Kindergarten in the U.S. are open to visitors from May through October with guided tours daily on the hour from 10:00 a.m.- 4:00 p.m. Don’t miss the Octagon House Ice Cream Social with 1st Brigade Band Concert held every August. The Dodge-Jefferson Counties Genealogical Society is located at 504 South 4th Street. Eight walking tours guide you through historic neighborhoods, commercial districts, and highlight the growing collection of murals which depict stories from the city’s past. Brochures, as well as commemorative postcards, are available through the Chamber of Commerce and area businesses.

MUSIC AND THEATER The talented Watertown Players provide the city with theatrical productions including the unique “theater in the octagonal” presentations performed in the Octagon House several times a year. There is always music in the air, with the

Watertown Municipal Band and the Watertown Chamber Orchestra playing seasonally, and the Watertown Community Concert Series hosting performers throughout the year. Watertown enjoys the privilege of being home base for The 1st Brigade Band, a nationally known Civil War era band which plays 19th century music on period instruments.

Horicon Marsh Area EXPERIENCE IT Get outdoors this year and experience the wildlife and many seasons of natural beauty at Horicon Marsh.

Fall

marks the return of mallard ducks, coots, herons, egrets, sandhill cranes, purple martins, warblers, and numerous others. A “chorus” of frogs is sure to be heard throughout the marsh signaling that warmer weather is here. The Horicon Marsh Bird Festival is held annually in May and offers many opportunities to view and photograph spring migrants and resident wildlife.

is well known for the mass migration of birds (and visitors!) to the marsh - Canada geese, as well as thousands of ducks of many different species – mallards, wood ducks, pintails, wigeon, redheads, bufflehead, and ruddy ducks; as well as impressive numbers of staging sandhill cranes. Opportunities also exist to view whooping cranes. Although closed for waterfowl hunting, the marsh is open for deer and small game hunting seasons in the fall, however there is waterfowl hunting in the State Wildlife area. Many educational programs and events are held marsh-wide throughout the season.

Summer

Winter

The Horicon Marsh Parkway is a 50-mile auto tour route that follows state and county roadways around the marsh, passing through or near many local communities. There are also roads, hiking and biking trails throughout the property, and a canoe trail accessing the waters of the marsh.

Spring

brings nesting season and warmer weather for hiking and bicycling around the marsh to view an array of species with their young. American white pelicans nest abundantly on the marsh during the summer and may be seen feeding in large groups – “herding” fish into shallower water for easier dining. Several fishing piers are also available at the marsh and make great places to spend relaxing summer afternoons.

is characterized as a frozen but peaceful time on the marsh and is also a good season for wildlife viewing. Eagles, owls, several species of hawks, muskrats, foxes and other wildlife, or evidence of, such as tracks or feathers, may be sighted when the entire marsh is open to snowshoeing, hiking, and cross country skiing (Dec. 1- Mar 15). Snowy owls are a notable species to watch for during the winter months.

Amish ADVENTURE One can find several Amish businesses, or businesses supporting Amish heritage, along many routes in the area. Most of these roads are very old and follow the "lay of the land". They were constructed using routes in existence in the 1700's and 1800's. Once into the interior of Amish country, it is impossible to get anywhere quickly! Please slow down and show courtesy to horse-drawn wagons and buggie! We want everyone to remain safe. Besides, scenery is always

more enjoyable when viewed at a slower pace.

Rediscover a simpler time and an area rich in heritage.

You will wind along bluff tops, down alongside rushing creeks and through uplands dotted with farms and country churches. The lodging and food choices here are fewer but perfectly fine; ranging from country inns to family motels to cabins. Enjoy a quiet drive through Amish country and rediscover a simpler time and an area rich in heritage.

Fox Lake ONE OF WISCONSIN’S “BEST KEPT SECRETS”

F

ox Lake is a great escape from your hectic day-to-day life. It has two great lakes for all of your waterfront needs. There is an 18 hole golf course which resides along the lake, an aquatic center, snowmobile trails, several local restaurants and much more. Knowledge of the history and archaeology of Fox Lake was enriched in 1983 when the Fox Lake Inland Lake Rehabilitation and Protection District installed a sewer system. Workers uncovered one of Wisconsin’s largest archaeological discoveries on Elmwood Island in Fox Lake. The details of the dig and artifacts were painstakingly catalogued and preserved. The Fox Lake Historical Museum, in the old train depot, displays the findings from the archaeological dig as well as other local history.

Visit Horicon Marsh HORICON MARSH IS THE LARGEST FRESHWATER CATTAIL MARSH IN THE CONTIGUOUS UNITED STATES WITH OVER 33,000 ACRES OF WETLAND.

G

et outdoors and experience the wildlife and many seasons of natural beauty at Horicon Marsh. The marsh provides habitat for endangered species and is a critical rest stop for thousands of migrating ducks and Canada geese. Because of its importance to wildlife, Horicon Marsh has been formally recognized as a Wetland of International Importance by the Ramsar Convention of the United Nations, is a “Globally Important Bird Area” and is a unit of the Ice Age Scientific Reserve. It has also been designated as one the “Seven Natural Wonders of Wisconsin” and is often referred to as the “Little Everglades of the North.” Located in southeast Wisconsin,

this vast wetland is only a one hour drive from Milwaukee and Madison. While the marsh in renowned for its migrant flocks of Canada geese, it is also home to more than 300 resident and migratory bird species which have been sighted over the years. Due to its international significance, scientists from around the world have traveled here for professional training to improve conservation programs in their own countries The Horicon Marsh State Wildlife Area comprises 11,000 acres of the marsh while the northern 22,000 acres is part of the Horicon National Wildlife Refuge. The National Wildlife Refuge was established as a breeding

habitat for the redheaded duck. Besides the over 300 bird species, other wildlife that live on the marsh are muskrats, red foxes, coyotes, turtles, frogs, bats, fish, deer, beaver, raccoons, river otters, rabbits and much more. New to the marsh is the release of whooping cranes. These were reintroduced in 2011. The chicks were trained by a crane-costumed biologist and left to freely migrate on their own. They returned to the refuge in 2012 and also utilized other local wetlands. Within the marsh there are hiking and bicycling trails, driving trails, a floating boardwalk, fishing piers, boat launches and canoe/kayak trails. Geocaching is enjoyed on the southern end of the marsh. Of course birding, photography, hiking, hunting, site seeing, snowshoeing, cross country skiing and fishing are popular activities on the marsh as well. Horicon Marsh has a unique and important story to tell. The geologic features of the area, created by our last ice age, were instrumental in providing resources for wildlife and humans alike. The human history of Horicon marsh is rich with culture and story; however it is one of tragedy and restoration. The wildlife present today at Horicon Marsh are the result of geologic and human activities, including modern-day wildlife management. To view a

movie about the history of the marsh, visitors can visit Horicon Marsh International Education Center on Hwy 28 between Mayville and Horicon. Public naturalist talks and hikes are given at both Horicon Marsh International Education Center and Horicon National Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center throughout the year and are free and open to the public. These talks focus on a variety of topics related to the geology, history, wildlife and management of Horicon Marsh. It helps the visitor understand the delicate natural relationship that exists at the 33,000 acre marsh. Visitors should stop at Horicon Marsh International Education Center (HMIEC) or Horicon National Wildlife Refuge Office and Visitor Center for maps and information about the marsh. HMIEC also has other area visitor information and maps available. There are various restrictions on certain areas of the marsh so visitors should stop for information at one of the visitor centers.
