History

Fox Lake Historical Society

All non-written history is on display at the Fox Lake Historical Society in the many buildings they operate for the community. The Society is responsible for the preservation of the Fox Lake Depot building, which houses the main society displays, as well as the Car Shed. The Car Shed houses a 1940s-era Fairbanks gas-engine-powered track car, the summer kitchen, working blacksmith shop, and Sinclair Gas Station building on the Depot grounds. It also operates the Community Congregational Museum up the street from the Depot grounds, which is one of the first churches in town being built in 1855 and was the longest running continuous

Harriett R. O’Connell Historical Room

Take a step back in time

church. It held its final service in October of 2012. Housed are items related to the theme of each building as well as farming and local business artifacts, Native American arrowheads, tools, weapons, military uniforms and equipment, an extraordinary Civil War artifact collection, a Bunny Berrigan collection dedicated to the famous jazz musician, and photographs of the people, places, buildings, and businesses that made Fox Lake what it is today. The Depot Museum at 211 W. Cordelia St., is open by appointment only. Call (920) 296- 0254. The church is open for special events or by appointment only.

The room is established to preserve historical material relating to the City of Fox Lake and the surrounding area and to honor the memory of Harriet R. O’Connell, who devoted much of her time and energy to the preservation of existing material. The Fox Lake Public Library houses the room in the lower level of the library but is a separate entity with its own governing board of trustees. The room is a vast collection of Fox Lake history, and it has been cited by members of the Wisconsin State Historical Society as the “largest collection of small-town history in the state”. At the present time there are several volunteers indexing the tax records, scrapbooks and newspapers dating back to the mid 1800’s. With past funding from a private source, cataloging the room resources has made great strides and there are thousands of entries leading researchers back to information about people, places, and events of Fox Lake and surround area. Library staff and volunteers are working to create digital records of the collection for better access and preservation. The historic newspapers are available on newspapers.com, with free access at the Fox Lake Public Library. Due to the huge project of putting the room in order, it is not possible for the library staff to do large personal research for people. Though the lower level is closed to the public, library staff and volunteers are available to assist researcher locate records. For further information or to make an appointment to research, contact the library at (920) 928-3223 or email the library director at eanders@monarchlibraries.org. More information about the historical room, digital collection and room policies can be found at https://www.foxlake.lib.wi.us/historical-room/ We are always in need of volunteers to preserve Fox Lake history. Volunteers typically meet Thursday afternoons, 1 – 3 pm, fall to spring. However, other times can be arranged to fit any schedule. If interested in becoming a volunteer, contact the library Director.

Fox Lake 2022 Visitor/Community Guide

Fox Lake’s settlement history dates back approximately 10,000 years before the white man came here. It was a fertile place and Native Americans favored the lake for good hunting, fertile cropland, easy living, and as a gathering spot. With Jacob P. Brower came the era of recorded history in Fox Lake, and by all accounts it was a peaceful transition. The name of the city changed three times in the early years: Frankfurt in 1839, Waushara in 1840, and finally Fox Lake in 1856. In 1860, at the beginning of the Civil War, the community had a population of 2,643, with nearly 2,000 individuals being residents of the Village proper. The community contributed greatly to the fight for the Union, sending three full companies to duty, including the Iron Brigade and the Eagle Regiment, as well as 20% of Berdan’s Sharpshooters, and numerous individual regimental volunteers. Fox Lake men were present at most eastern theater battles from Bull Run to Appomattox. Riverside Cemetery is the final resting place of war veterans from the War of 1812 through current conflicts and all in between, as well as the rejected lover of Florence Nightingale. Fox Lake has the oldest wood-framed building in Dodge County. They had a marine US mail route, along the Military Road. Fox Lake also hosted the first Wisconsin school for women, the Wisconsin Female Academy, later known as Downer College.

Fish Stocking on Fox Lake

To promote the recreational use of Fox Lake, the Fox Lake Preservation Organization (FLPO) in conjunction with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) continue to commit itself to an extensive yearly fish stocking program.

Recreation

On September 27th at 9:00 am, the FLPO worked with 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students from SAGES to release 6,500 walleye and perch into Fox Lake at Town Park on Blackhawk Trail. There were 4,000 5-7 inch perch and 2,500 6-8 inch walleye introduced to Fox Lake. The success of the annual fish stocking program is made possible by fundraising events, donations, and FLPO membership dues. The generous financial support and the time and effort of volunteers assure that Fox Lake remains a top-rated fishing lake.

Fishing Year round recreation is abundant in Fox Lake The year round recreation is never ending in the greater Fox Lake area. Snowmobile trails, cross-country skiing, hiking, hunting, just to name a few. Golf at our 18-hole golf course, shop the downtown or swim at our sparkling aquatic center. It doesn’t matter what you do for fun, there are many ways to enjoy yourself in Fox Lake. The lakes offer limitless recreational opportunities, such as fishing, kayaking, boating, skiing, tubing and outdoor lakeside dining. Fox Lake continues to be a tourist destination year after year. Come join us!

Friends of the Lake Outing The Fox Lake Preservation Organization invites special needs adults and chaperones to be their guests at Town Park, Blackhawk Trail, for pontoon boat tours on Fox Lake. Snacks and beverages are provided. After several hours of touring the lake, the guests return to shore for a cook- out lunch. Held for 27 years, traditionally on the third Saturday in June, the Friends of the Lake Outing has become the popular social event for our friends from ARC of Dodge County and Bethesda Lutheran Home in Fox Lake. It takes many volunteers, pontoon boat captains and “first mates”, cooks, servers and dockside attendants to make the outing a memorable experience for the guests. For further information please call Bob Bergman at (920)-928-3486

Fox Lake 2022 Visitor/Community Guide

Fox Lake is continuing to earn its reputation as one of the top 10 fishing lakes in the state of Wisconsin. Abundant fish include perch, crappies, blue gills, muskie, northern, walleye and bass. Fishing is a year-round sport in Fox Lake, whether it happens from boats, docks, or public piers at the Town of Fox Lake Park/Boat Launch on Blackhawk Trail or the City of Fox Lake Clausen-Riverside Park/Boat Launch. Winter ice doesn’t stop us either. Ice fishing is alive and well in Fox Lake! You may pick up a map of Fox Lake, courtesy of the Fox Lake Chamber of Commerce, at area resorts and businesses. Fox Lake isn’t the only lake in the area. Lake Emily is just northwest of Fox Lake and Beaver Dam is just south. Each have public launches.

Mill Creek Dam

The Mill Creek Dam is also a favorite spot for fishing throughout the entire spring and summer. Located at the end of Mill Street, this dam controls water flow from Fox Lake to neighboring Beaver Dam Lake. The Mill Creek Restoration project provides a handicap fishing and picnicking area with a handicap-accessible table by Riverside Park. For more information regarding the Mill Creek Restoration project, call the Fox Lake City Hall at (920) 928-2280.

Fireman’s Park Disc Golf Course is a 9 hole course, set in a multi-use park that plays around a swimming pool and baseball diamonds. There are discatcher baskets on all holes. It offers a mix of shots with some longer holes and plenty of out-of-bounds with fences. The course is mostly flat and lightly wooded. Tee pads are varied, with some on concrete, some on roads. There are two tees per hole (white/ blue) that are signified by blocks in the ground. Even the natural areas are level and easy to throw from. There are nice differences in distance, especially between tees. The alternate pin placements really change the distances. It is located at 248 E. State St., Fox Lake.

Walking Trail In the summer of 2003 the City of Fox Lake Beautification Committee made a dream become a reality by turning the old railroad loop into a walking trail from the Depot to Fox Lake Junction. The loop is approximately one mile long using the route through Fox Lake that the railroad company created to bring the railroad line to town. It was used until the 1960s by Fox Lake. By 2006, a prairie garden, other gardens, and several trees were planted next to the walking trail. Signage and two gated arbors on the Trenton Street entrance were also installed. Walkers can enter the trail at any point; however, the Depot Railroad Museum on Cordelia Street is considered the beginning of the trail. Any season—winter, spring, summer and fall—just look for signage and enjoy a hike on the Fox Lake Loop Walking Trail.

Hunting Each fall, deer hunters gather in and around Fox Lake in Dodge County to take home that special trophy. Many public hunting areas are available. For more information, contact the Horicon DNR at (920) 387-7860. Public Hunting near Fox Lake Shaw Marsh Wildlife Area 903 acres, state-owned Horicon Marsh Wildlife 11,009 acres, state-owned Westford Public Hunting Grounds 682 acres, state-owned Fox Lake Fishery Area 464 acres, state-owned


Aquatic Center When visiting Fox Lake during the summer, make a point of checking out the city’s Aquatic Center. It is fun for the entire family.

A large umbrella area is perfect for taking a break and relaxing in the shade. The Aquatic Center offers swimming lessons for all ages, contact Dodge County YMCA for details.

Experienced judges and staff with top-notch dedication will be on hand, as it should be. We are not like most other car shows. This is a passion. We look forward to welcoming you on Saturday, July 23.

Gates open at 9am rain or shine, welcoming all vehicles from all years. This includes cars, trucks, motorcycles, and anything else you can drive through the gate. Awards include trophies and plaques, also dash plaques to the first 250 vehicles. Good food, beer and other refreshments are also available to keep you going all day long. T-shirts will also be available for purchase. Judging is concourse style with $10 at the gate for judged show vehicles and $5 for show only/non-judged vehicles. Spectators are free.

For information regarding the annual car show, and vendors, (no food vendors please), contact the Fire Department at (920)-928-6115 or email at flfd@foxfd.com. On behalf of the Fox Lake Fire Department and its dedicated people and committee, we look forward to your visit.

The Aquatic Center is also located on the show grounds, with many areas for kids, and good music, that translates to good times.

In 2021, SAGES was recognized by the Wisconsin Department of Public Education for its efforts to implement an equitable system of support in the area of behavior.

Celebrating its 10th year since inception, SAGES is proud to continue its focus of building strong relationships with their learners and families. Support from and partnerships with local businesses and organizations have been integral in providing SAGES’ learners with realworld experiences that positively impact them and the community.

St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran School St. John’s Lutheran School provides a Christ-centered education for children in 3-year-old Kindergarten through 8th grade in a safe, caring environment. The students at St. John’s are taught through strong academic programs using up-to-date and innovative methods, technology and materials. St. John’s provides a low student – to – teacher ratio. Our classes are multi-age, providing the teachers the opportunity to teach each child at his or her individual ability. We teach our students the love that our dear Savior has for them and the gift of forgiveness He gives to us all. Each day your child will be able to hear the Word of God and be strengthened in faith through the Holy Spirit. If you have any question or are interested in our school, please contact the school office at 928-3296. St. John’s has now added a 3-YearOld Kindergarten program. These students love to dive in with both hands—whether it is finger-paint, glue, crayons, paint, or playdough! Moving in new ways with diverse materials helps promote fine motor skills and

reinforces mind-body connections in the developing brain. We encourage this kind of play and plan handson, age appropriate activities in art, science, math, and pre-reading skills to keep their creative juices flowing! At this time, the cost for the 3-Year-Old program is $50 per month. St. John’s hosts an early childhood program called SonBeams. Due to Covid, this program is temporarily on hiatus. Please watch our website or facebook page for information about when this program will resume. We would also invite you to join us for a worship service. Services are currently held at 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. on Sundays with a repeat service on Wednesday evening at 7 p.m. Our services are also live streamed at 8 a.m. on Sundays and are available for viewing on our website. Our church and school are affiliated with the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. Please contact Pastor Nottling at 920-928-3250 or visit our website, www.stjohnsfoxlake.org for any questions about our congregation or what we have to offer.
