Village of Attica



Extracted from the "History of Green County, Wisconsin" published by Union Publishing Company, Springfield, Ill. 1884; page 727:
This small village was called Winneshiek in 1845. For a time it was also called Milford, but was soon changed back to Winneshiek. Then the post office was established and it was called Attica as there was already a town name Winneshiek in the state.
Several settlers already in the area were: Newell DUSTIN, Elijah THOMPSON, Ben CROSS, Chester WHITLER, and Lorenzo BARNES.
Later settlers were: Jeptha DAVIS, Joseph BARTLETT, S.A. Scott, Joshua CLARK, Benjamin CLEVELAND, and Oscar PERSONS.
There was also one Church society.
