Annual Events in Edgerton

A little piece of history…

Originally called Fulton Station, Edgerton was named after a 19th-century businessman, Elisha W. Edgerton and 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. Edgerton is also the hometown of Sterling North, author of Rascal. North’s home is now a museum and popular visitor attraction.
