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 territorial 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.

Downtown Beaver Dam the heart of our community

RiveR MaRket

May - September 8 a.m.-Noon 2nd Saturday of the month Tower Parking Lot Downtown Beaver Dam

D

Combining with merchants and city government, the downtown business district has been transformed into a beautiful place. The Beaver Dam River, once hidden behind and beneath downtown buildings, now flows through the heart of the city as it did for centuries. Continuing changes are being made including the installation of ornamental crossings and light posts, façade improvements, other streetscape improvements and more. New businesses complement old favorites, offering a wide range of products and services for shoppers young and old. An ongoing project is the installation of wall murals on the walls of downtown buildings. Funds are being raised to add more to the collection, which began with a tribute to the famous Monarch Range plant which once supported the city’s economy and put Beaver Dam’s name on the map of thriving industrial centers. More murals will appear, with the help of the famous Walldogs artists, to honor the businesses, people and industries which made the city what it is today. All are invited to come and spend time in the downtown district. Attractions include the monthly summertime River Market in the Tower Parking Lot on the second Saturday of the month, May through September. The Downtown Beaver Dam Holiday Parade steps off on the first Saturday in December, with nearly 50 entries in a celebration of Beaver Dam’s citizens, businesses, industries, service providers and civic groups. An “After P arty” brings the community together for songs, treats and a large dose of holiday spirit.

lakes

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 waterskiing, 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.

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.

On the Trails Wild Goose State Trail Wild Goose State Trail links the City of Juneau - "Gateway to the Wild Goose Trail" and the City of Fond du Lac. This 34 mile compacted limestone trail on an abandoned railroad grade traverses oak woodlots, fertile farm fields, prairie remnants and sparkling streams as it runs through the rural country sides of Dodge and Fond du Lac Counties and skirts the western edge of the internationally known Horicon Marsh National Wildlife Refuge. 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

outdoor recreation

The glaciers that once covered Dodge County have sculpted a landscape ideal for auto touring. Several scenic overlooks around the Horicon Marsh allow you to view the wetland’s wildlife. Follow the brown signs that mark the route of the Horicon Marsh Parkway, a 50-mile auto tour that encircles the Horicon Marsh and follows state and county highways through Burnett, Kekoskee, Horicon, Mayville and Waupun. The Parkway is easily accessible from U.S. Highway 151 or State Highway 41 by following State Highway 33 to access the south end of the Parkway or Highway 49 to access the north end of the Parkway.

slopes, wet crossings and near highways and roads. The trail surface is grass, dirt and wood chips and winds through wooded and open areas in the right-of-way of the Wild Goose Trail. Horses are not allowed on the limestone-surfaced trail except at designated horse trail crossings.

Horseback Riding

Dodge County welcomes horseback riding on a separate 14-mile pathway along the Wild Goose State Trail between Highway 60 and Pautsch Road (about four miles north of Burnett). Trail terrain is generally easy riding, although special caution is Fish & Wildlife Service necessary in areas with steep side

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 “club-owned” 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. Check www.co.dodge.wi.us.com for trail openings.

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.

During the last Ice Age, which ended about 10,000 years ago, a massive ice sheet covered the entire county. The countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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 LEGEND of elevation change with the highest points US Highways reaching 1,200 feet above sea level in the State Highways northeast, to 800 feet above sea level in the southwestern portions of the county. County Highways The two most prominent topographic feaRailroads tures in the county include the very flat, marsh areas, such as the Horicon Marsh, Township Borders and the Niagara Escarpment, which rises County Boundaries 190 feet in some areas.

Outdoor Recreation

With an abundance of parks, trails and the Rock River, Watertown is overflowing with recreational opportunities. The city has 27 parks, covering 275 acres where families can picnic, hike, play volleyball and softball, cookout or simply relax and take in a beautiful Wisconsin day.

Dining

Watertown has a wide variety of restaurants including Mullen’s Dairy and Eatery, an old-time ice cream parlor and local restaurants like Rock River Pizza and Elias Inn Supper Club. Be sure to check

out the new Harvest Market, a made to order restaurant that prepares all its ingredients to from scratch. Another must see is the Upper Krust for lunch or dinner and to taste some of the best pies in the area. Tribeca Gallery Café & Books is the perfect spot to browse local art, shop for books and enjoy a hot beverage.

There is always music in the air, with the Watertown Municipal Band, the Watertown Chamber Orchestra and the Watertown Community Concert Series performing throughout the year.

C i t y w i t h a h e a r t, a n d a h e a d f o r b u s i n e s s The City of Juneau, settled in 1845 and the Dodge County Seat is a rural community which has numerous historical buildings and sites for the history buff and amateur alike. The city also offers attractions as well as recreational opportunities.

The Wild Goose State Trail runs directly through the city, offering hiking and bicycling. Stop for refreshments at one of the local restaurants. A new park, just adjacent to the trail, is a fine place to rest, camp or take a shower. The park is located north of Center Street or south of Home Road (also County DF).

E n j o y t h e outdoors The southern end of the thirty-four mile nature trail starts just four miles south of Juneau on Highway 60. A separate horseback-riding trail runs alongside the trail for fourteen miles from Hwy 60 north to Minnesota Junction. In the winter, snowmobilers and ATV riders can enjoy the scenic route.

A new carnival, Happy World, from Texas will present an expanded Midway with all new and larger rides. The “Coors Light Variety Stage” this year will feature a mix of country, rock, blues and other genres of music each day.

They are: Leroy Thomas and the Zydeco Roadrunners, Al Berard and the Basin Brothers and The Dog Hill Stompers. An amazing Fireworks Show will again be held on the 4th. Prison City Pull-Off Tractor Pull will be held on the Friday and Saturday in coordination with Celebrate Waupun again this year.

Horicon Marsh Area experience it

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

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.

Summer

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.

Where to Go for Care...

Fall

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.

Winter

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.

HOME OF THE BEST Cheese • Sausage Ice Cream • Candy Wine & So Much More!

Wildlife Viewing Tips • Dawn and dusk are the best times to see wildlife. • Move or sit quietly and watch for movement or listen for sounds or look for animal signs. • Keep a safe distance to avoid disturbing an animal - use a scope or binoculars for a closer look. • Cars make good observation blinds. • Don’t feed wildlife - human food can disrupt wild digestive systems and alter natural feeding habits. • Leave “abandoned” young alone - a parent is most likely close by waiting for you to leave.

Fox Lake

one of wisconsin’s “best kept secrets” Fox Lake Car Show Every July

W

hile you may hear a fish tale or two, Fox Lake has a unique experience to offer all those who find themselves friends for a day, or for a lifetime.

From the ripple of a wave to the roar of a snowmobile, the lake has many activities for all interests in all seasons. Our resorts and lakeside community continually host fishing events, ice races, and guided or rented boat tours. If you find that one day just isn’t enough time to enjoy the repose of the lake atmosphere, rent a cabin on the water and let the crickets serenade you to sleep. While visiting our lake community, be sure to venture downtown. Freckled with personality, Fox Lake emits a warm reception to the inquisitive visitor. Try your hand at a round of golf on our pristine 18-hole course, or stop in for ice cream at our nostalgic Drive In. Peruse our vintage and specialty shops, or take a dip in our aquatic center designed for young and old alike. For the refined palette, we offer wine tastings, concerts in the park, and fine dining. Fox Lake is a city rich in history. 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. For more information about our area and special events, please stop in at our Chamber office at 305 W. State Street (inside Nehls Realty) or give us a call at 920-928-3777.

Whatever your interest, you are always welcome and we anxiously await the next time we see you!

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 Redhead 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, mink 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, two boardwalks, 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 Education & Visitor Center on Hwy 28 between Mayville and Horicon. Public naturalist talks and hikes are given at both Horicon Marsh Education & Visitor 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 Education & Visitor Center or Horicon National Wildlife Refuge Office and Visitor Center for maps and information about the marsh. Horicon Marsh Education & Visitor Center 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.

Horicon Marsh Education & Visitor Center opened to the public in spring of 2009 with the goal of providing a world-class visitor center on Horicon Marsh, a facility for conducting wildlife education programs. This 25,000 square foot, $4.8m facility has international significance, because scientists from around the world have traveled here for professional training to improve conservation programs in their own countries. The Wildlife Education Program has been conducted at the marsh since the mid-1980’s. This program focuses on the abundant wildlife resources of the marsh, their ecology and applied management. DNR Educators rely on the diverse wildlife to develop a wide range of educational programs aimed at introducing and sharing our native wildlife with a broad audience. Horicon Marsh Education & Visitor Center serves as both a destination and gateway for visitors to Horicon Marsh as well as providing for year-round education opportunities. More than 500,000 people visit the marsh annually to observe wildlife in a natural setting, creating a huge demand for interpretive services. The facility features an auditorium, two classrooms, Flyway Gift Shop, public viewing area with a spectacular view of Horicon Marsh, wildlife displays, art exhibits, Children’s Discovery Area and many other building amenities. Visitors may borrow binoculars, field guides and snowshoes at no cost. Plans are under way to add $3.5m in displays and exhibits to the facility. The grand opening for these new state of the art displays will be in 2015.
