About Edgerton

Edgerton, Wisconsin

 

 

 

 

Edgerton is a city in Rock County and partly in Dane County in the U.S. state of Wisconsin. The population was 5,461 at the 2010 census. Of this, 5,364 were in Rock County, and 97 were in Dane County. Known locally as "Tobacco City U.S.A.," because of the importance of tobacco growing in the region,  Edgerton continues to be a center for the declining tobacco industry in the area.

 

 

 

 

History

 

 

 

Originally called Fulton Station, Edgerton was named after a 19th-century businessman, Elisha W. Edgerton, or his brother Benjamin Hyde Edgerton, a civil engineer. 

In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Edgerton was the center of the tobacco industry in southern Wisconsin. At one time, there were as many as 52 tobacco warehouses dotting the streets of Edgerton.[10] Queen Anne stylemansions along Edgerton's Washington Street testify to the wealth and prominence some merchants once had. The 1890s Carlton Hotel, once located on Henry Street, also once served as an additional reminder of the tobacco industry's influence. Although built by a brewing firm, the hotel (which burned to the ground in the 1990s) was frequented by tobacco buyers and sellers.


 

 

 

Geography

 

 

 

 

Edgerton is located at 42°50′10″N 89°4′23″W (42.836108, -89.072919).  According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 4.14 square miles (10.72 km2), all of it land.  None of the area is covered with water, except for Saunders Creek, although the city is within a five-minute drive of Lake Koshkonong.

 

 

 

 

 

Arts and culture

 

 

 

Annual cultural events 

 

 

 


Because Edgerton was once the center of the tobacco growing region in Wisconsin, the community's annual celebration is called Tobacco Days. The community celebration includes live music, food, family entertainment, a craft fair, an open air market, living history events and demonstrations, tobacco demonstrations, citywide rummage sales, book sales, a parade, and a car show.

The Sterling North Book and Film Festival, which takes place annually the last weekend in September, brings together authors and filmmakers with the community.

 

 

 

 

Tourism 

 

 


The Sterling North Home and Museum is the childhood home of authors Sterling North and Jessica Nelson North MacDonald. North's most famous book,Rascal was set in Edgerton and he used the town as the setting for several of his books, referring to it as "Brailsford Junction."

The Pomeroy and Pelton Tobacco Warehouse, known as the T. W. Dickinson & Son Tobacco Warehouse after it was purchased by Weetman Dickinson, is on theNational Register of Historic Places. It is the oldest free-standing brick warehouse in Wisconsin.

Edgerton is also known for its association with Pauline Jacobus. Jacobus and her husband, Oscar Jacobus, were responsible for the first artistic pottery created inChicago in the mid-1880s. By 1888, the couple had moved their business to Edgerton. Although Oscar's death and an economic depression disrupted the business in the 1890s, Pauline Jacobus continued making pottery in Edgerton until the early 1900s' fire that destroyed her rural Edgerton home, "The Bogart". Much admired and sought-after as an American art form, "Pauline Pottery" is recognized in antique and art galleries throughout the world. A log cabin from the old Bogart site and the factory warehouse where Pauline Pottery was first made in Edgerton still survive.
