The city of Waukesha, originally known as Prairie Village, was lush with forestry and prairies along the banks of the Fox River, the first home to resident Indian tribes like Sauk, Menomonie, Winnebago and Potawatomi. These tribes’ prehistoric ancestors left behind a number of earthen mounds; early pioneers reported 11 groupings of 55 mounds. A number of the mounds were conical or linear, while others were the forms of birds and reptiles; some were for burial.
Prior to the 1830s, the area was unvisited by settlers due to its inland location, as well as the fact that the Fox River was not a water highway. European settlers came only to the area to set up fur trading posts between their new encampments and established cities like Milwaukee. The first permanent white settlers — Morris D. Cutler and Alonso Cutler — arrived in 1834 seeking claims for homesteads. In 1836, Indian tribes formally lost title to the land and were removed by the Federal Army. Upon the removal, southeast Wisconsin’s settlement quickly began to grow.
Solomon Juneau of nearby Milwaukee was the first supplier to the area. His small store allowed settled families in the area to purchase the provisions needed to survive the difficult winter of 1836-1837. The arrival of the first permanent general store followed in 1839.
The first sign of industry came in 1838 when a sawmill was constructed along the Fox River to supply lumber for community building projects. In 1839, a large flourmill — Forest City Mill — began operations and featured the only smutter (a device used to clean the grain) in the entire territory. In 1840 land leased from Morris Cutler was developed into a limestone quarry. The first local newspaper reporting local, state and national news called the American Freeman printed its first edition in September of 1844, and the first hardware store in 1847 solidified the village as a growing hub. The village’s first manufacturing plant was erected in 1845, the Hickory Grove Brewery opened in the 1850s and in 1855, the Waukesha County Bank was established.
Waukesha, translated to mean “By The Little Fox,” gained worldwide notoriety as a resort area during the last quarter of the nineteenth century, all traced to a man named Colonel Richard Dunbar. Suffering from painful diabetes, Dunbar accidentally discovered the alleged “healing effects” of local spring water. Ending the search for a cure for his illness, he spent the last 10 years of his life believing and promoting that Waukesha spring water could indeed cure certain sicknesses.
Over the years, Waukesha has grown and prospered to today represent a thriving city (the seventh largest in Wisconsin) of more than 70,000 residents, defined by diversified industry, quality education, strong health care facilities, attractive and friendly residential areas and a qualified and experienced hospitality industry. While visiting Waukesha, you can enjoy the bygone era in the many parks, museums and carefully restored architecture of the downtown district.
