Oconto County


town of Underhill

Mosling was originally named after the Mosling family who immigrated from Isle of Wight, at the south tip of England, first settling along the Oconto County shore of Green Bay on Lake Michigan. They brought with them centuries of commercial fishing skills. The next generation of the Mosling family migrated to western Oconto County where they developed homesteads in the wilderness. A settlement that once consisted of a stage stop, general store run by Joseph Holl, blacksmith, livery, sawmill, and other shops and businesses grew up there and was named for the founding family of Mosling.

In the later 1800's families from Hillsland, Sweden immigrated to America settling into farming and other businesses in the Mosling area.
