About Sun Prairie

Sun Prairie, Wisconsin

 

 

 

 

 

Sun Prairie is a city in Dane County in the U.S. state of Wisconsin. A suburb of Madison it is part of the Madison Metropolitan Statistical Area. The 2010 US Census city's population was 29,441. It is the third-fastest growing city in Wisconsin, and the fastest-growing among cities of 20,000 or more, growing an estimated 4.9% between 2010 and 2013 to 30,871 people. It is the second most populous city in Dane County after Madison. Sun Prairie became widely known for Jimmy the Groundhog when the rodent bit the mayor's ear duing the city's 2015Groundhog Day celebration.

 

 

 

 

 

History

 

 

 

 

 

A bird's eye view of Sun Prairie, circa 1875.

 

 

 

 

 

President Martin Van Buren commissioned a party of 45 men, including Augustus A. Bird, to build a capitol for the Territory of Wisconsin in Madison. The group of men left Milwaukee on May 26, 1837, and traveled for days in the rain. On June 9, the group emerged at the edge of the prairie and with the sun shining for the first time in days, carved the words "Sun Prairie" into a tree. Charles Bird returned to the area two years later and became the first settler.

The Town of Sun Prairie was created on February 2, 1846. The city of Sun Prairie, which grew from that town, was incorporated in 1958.

 

 

 

 

 

Economy

 

 

 

 

QBE Insurance has American operations in Sun Prairie. Other significant employers include the Sun Prairie School District, American Family Insurance and Frontier Communications.

Sun Prairie, and by proxy, Dane County, has a low unemployment rate, and in some instances the lowest of any metropolitan area in the nation. The trend represented by this and other economic factors indicates "an increase in the level of business activity and a slowdown in labor force growth, which is expected to last well into the 21st Century."

 

 

 

 

Education

 

 

 

 

The Sun Prairie Area School District administers local public education. The system, which as of the 2007-08 school year enrolled 6,024 students, consists of seven elementary schools, two middle schools, an upper-middle school and a single high school.

There are three parochial schools in Sun Prairie. Founded in 1892, Sacred Hearts School is a Catholic school serving children of pre-Kthrough 8th grade. Two other schools, Peace Evangelical Lutheran (pre-K-8) and Calvary Baptist Christian (K-8) have smaller student bodies. Most recently, Calvary Baptist, which had a very small enrollment of only 25 students, closed the school, effective June 30, 2008.

Points of interest

 

 


 

Four properties in Sun Prairie are listed in the National Register of Historic Places: the Dr. Charles G. Crosse House, the Fuhremann Canning Company Factory, the Adam and Mary Smith House, and the Sun Prairie Water Tower. The Crosse House was built in 1864 by a locally prominent physician and city leader. The Fuhremann Canning Company Factory, in use from 1900 to 1974, now lies vacant. The Adam and Mary Smith House was constructed in 1879 by Adam Smith, who had come to Wisconsin to do shingle work on the Wisconsin State Capitol. The Sun Prairie Water Tower, located at the junction of Columbus, Church and Cliff Streets, was designed by Frank Stegerwald and constructed in 1912 of stone, metal and wood.

Sun Prairie's Jimmy the Groundhog is the local favorite on Groundhog Day in February. The United States Congressional Record described the city as the "Groundhog Capital of the World" in 1955.

During the city's Groundhog Day celebration on February 2, 2015, Jimmy bit Mayor Jonathan Freund's ear while being held by Jimmy's caretaker. The next day, Freund issued a proclamation that officially pardoned and absolved Jimmy "of any perceived wrongdoing and charges" under the city's ordinance. The proclamation stated that Jimmy had "created an international media sensation, thereby helping the world to learn more about our great City".Two weeks later, Freund came in last of three candidates in the city's mayoral primary election.

In mid-June, the city holds a local Taste of the Arts fair, in conjunction with the Georgia O'Keeffe Celebration. Artwork is exhibited and instructional classes for arts and crafts are held. A Georgia O'Keeffe recreation discussion is held.

The Flags of Freedom Field Show is a day-long series of events in July, involving high-school marching band competitions that feature bands from throughout the United States and Canada. It is hosted by the Sound of Sun Prairie.[50]

In mid-August of each year, Sun Prairie hosts a Sweet Corn Festival, which is attended by over 100,000 people from all over the Midwest. Over 70 short tons (63 t)of sweet corn are served or sold during the weekend event, which includes a carnival, a parade down Main Street and performances by local and regional musical groups.
