Welcome to Eagle, Waukesha County, WI!

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Realty Center

Eagle, WI

The area received its name when, in 1836, Thomas Sugden, John Coats and Mr. Garton came to a beautiful prairie and saw a "huge" bald headed eagle soaring overhead. The first claim was made by A.R. Hinkley but the first permanent settlers were E. Thomas and wife, who erected a house in 1836. Before the end of that year, the first mill in the town of Eagle was built in Eagleville. When the southern branch of the Milwaukee & St. Paul Railroad came through the town in 1851, the village of Eagle Center was created, leading to the eventual decline of other villages in the township. With the passing of time, the village name evolved to Eagle.

Hello Kristin,  Wonder, do they still have eagles there?  Denver lost in overtime, we were 24 to 0 at halftime with Denver on top to loose in overtime by 3.  Oh well.

Kristin, We have a Sugden Park down here, with all the folks coming from Wisconson, I wonder if it is the same family?

Kristin, love that friendly looking water tower!  Transportation could either make or break a town whether it be a location of a Great Lake, river, railroad, or interstate highway.  Interesting history of Eagle.  Sounds like your HTH helped you with this post concerning the historical background of Eagle!  ^_~
