A Proud Part of Trails to the Past and Wisconsin Trails to the Past!!!



Welcome to Dodge County, Wisconsin's Trails to the Past! My name is Jeanne and I am your host to this site. If you find any broken links, please let me know.






Dodge County, Wisconsin was formed in 1836 and named for the then territorial governor Henry Dodge. The county seat was identified as Victory. Victory was renamed Juneau in honor of Paul Juneau, the son of Solomon Juneau, who founded Milwaukee.

Iron ore was discovered near Mayville and iron works operated here for several decades before the competition from mines near Lake Superior closed them down. Sawmills were wide spread throughout the county in the 1870s.

John Jossie created Brick Cheese here in 1875. Originally from Switzerland, he started the first brick cheese factory in Watertown which operated until 1943.

Dodge County is a leading county in the production of green peas, hay, barley, alfalfa and brick cheese.



Dodge County is surrounded by Dane County, Columbia County, Green Lake County, Fond du Lac County, Washington County, Waukesha County and Jefferson County.
