Live in the delightful community of Eagle WI!
Eagle is a village in Waukesha County, Wisconsin. It is situated in the southern unit of the Kettle Moraine State Forest.
The village got its name in 1836 when a group of travelers exploring the area saw a huge bald headed eagle soaring overhead.
In 1876, the village was nearly named “Diamond City” after a diamond was discovered while digging a well. Later on, the diamond was identified as one of the largest glacial diamonds ever found in the United States.
By 1880, the village was considered the third ranking community in Waukesha County in terms of commercial importance. It had two dry goods houses, two hardware stores, two clothing and tailoring establishments, a butcher shop, a grocery store, a harness shop, a milliner, salons, and a grain elevator and warehouse.
During the 1950’s and 1960’s, the village of Eagle transitioned from an economy based on agriculture and railroad to one of recreation and tourism.
