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 church. It held its final service in October of 2012.
Harriett R. O’Connell Historical Room
Take a step back in time
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. Please look for 2nd Saturday programs over the winter months and a special event on May 6. The Depot Museum at 211 W. Cordelia St., is open the 1st and 3rd Sundays from 1-4pm from June to the first weekend in October. The church is open for special events or by appointment only. Call (920) 296- 0254.
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 researchers 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 email@example.com. 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. Other times can be arranged to fit any schedule. If interested in becoming a volunteer, contact the library Director.
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.

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.

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.
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.

Offering a rigorous, standards-based curriculum that engages learners in the learning process, SAGES’ personalized learning methods include: questioning, off-school grounds learning, and project-based learning.
