About Fond Du Lac

Fond du Lac, Wisconsin

 

 

 

 

Fond du Lac is a city in Fond du Lac CountyWisconsinUnited States. The name is French for bottom of the lake, named as such because of its location at the bottom (south end) of Lake Winnebago. The population was 43,021 at the 2010 census.

The city forms the core of the United States Census Bureau's Fond du Lac Metropolitan Statistical Area, which includes all of Fond du Lac County (2000 population: 97,296). Fond du Lac is the 342nd largest Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) in the United States. The Fond du Lac MSA and the Beaver Dam (city), WisconsinMicropolitan Statistical Area, form the larger Fond du Lac-Beaver Dam Combined Statistical Area.

 

 

 

 

 

History

 

 

 

Native American tribes, primarily the Winnebagos but also the PotawatomiKickapoo, and Mascoutin lived or gathered in the area long before European explorers arrived. Although the identity of the first white man to explore the southern end of Lake Winnebago is uncertain, it was probably Claude-Jean Allouez, followed by French fur trappers.[6]

James Doty, a federal judge for the western part of the Michigan Territory, thought that the land at the foot of Lake Winnebago might be a good location for a city, so he and his partners bought land in the area. In 1836, during the Wisconsin Territorial Legislature, John Arndt proposed making Fond du Lac the new capital.[7]The motion failed, and Doty convinced the legislature to choose Madison instead.

Colwert and Fanna Pier were the first white residents of the area. In 1835, the construction of the Military Ridge Road began. It passed through Fond du Lac, connecting the forts in Wisconsin and Fort Dearborn in Illinois. The first school in Fond du Lac was built in 1843. The first railroad came to the community in 1852. About 1856, the first English newspaper in Fond du Lac, the Fond du Lac Commonwealth, was founded. Logging and milling were primary industries in the late 1880s, with access to the lake as the engine of the industry.

 

 

 

 

 

Historic districts

 

 

 

 

Fond du Lac has 20 listings on the National Register of Historic Places, including four historic districts: the South Main Street Historic District, the North Main Street Historic District, the Linden Street Historic District, and the East Division Street-Sheboygan Street Historic District. Other listings include six houses, two octagon houses, two hotels, a church, a fire station, a train depot, an apartment building, a commercial building, and a prehistoric site. Most of the buildings listed in the register were a result of economic prosperity following the lumber industry boom in the Fox Valley and the newly rich building residences in the area.

 

 

 

 

Education

 

 

 

 

Fond du Lac is served by the Fond du Lac School District. Its schools include:

Goodrich High School was the public high school from 1922 to 2001. When Fond du Lac High School was built, the Goodrich building became Riverside Elementary school.

Private secondary schools in Fond du Lac include: Winnebago Lutheran Academy, a Lutheran (WELS) high school;  St. Mary Springs High School, a Catholic high school; Fond du Lac Christian School, an interdenominational K-12 school;[19] and Trinity Baptist School, a Baptist K-12 school.

St. Mary's Springs Academy also operates an elementary school and middle school, which were formerly named Fond du Lac Area Catholic Education System (FACES). Fond du Lac also has four Lutheran primary schools.

Fond du Lac is the home of three colleges: Marian University, a private Catholic four-year university; the University of Wisconsin-Fond du Lac, a two-year campus in the University of Wisconsin Colleges; and Moraine Park Technical College, a two-year technical college in the Wisconsin Technical College System.




 

Religion

 

 

 

 

Agnesian HealthCare

Fond du Lac's population is about one-third Roman Catholic. In 2000 the six Catholic parishes of St. Mary, St. Joseph, Sacred Heart, St. Louis, St. Patrick and St. Peter merged into a single entity called Holy Family Catholic Community. St. Louis Catholic Church burned down in 2007 and the building was demolished. The St. Patrick and St. Joseph churches closed, while Sacred Heart, St. Mary, and St. Peter remain open.

The mother house of the Sisters of Saint Agnes is located in Fond du Lac. The order operates Agnesian HealthCare and St. Agnes Hospital in the city.

Fond du Lac is the episcopal see of the Episcopal Diocese of Fond du LacSt. Paul's Cathedral is the mother church of the Diocese.

Fond du Lac also has a synagogue, Temple Beth Israel. Although Jewish people first came to Fond du Lac in the late 19th century, the first synagogue was not established until 1914.

Lottery winnings and the "Miracle Mile"

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ma and Pa's on the "Miracle Mile"


In the 1990s, several grocery and convenience stores on a stretch of South Main Street in Fond du Lac sold large winningWisconsin Lottery tickets, resulting in that part of Main Street being dubbed "The Miracle Mile." The first ticket, sold by Sentry Grocery Store (now closed), was for over $100 million and was won on July 7, 1993, by then Sabish Junior High (now middle school) English teacher, Les Robbins, and his then-fiancee, Colleen DeVries.

On August 5, 2006, Ma and Pa's Grocery Express, which is in the heart of the Miracle Mile, sold the only winning Powerballticket for $209 million. The ticket was claimed on September 22, 2006 by 100 factory workers from Sargento Cheese in Plymouth, Wisconsin.
