Town of Lomira Observes its 175th Anniversary in 2024

A little history about the Town . . . .

Settlers began arriving in the area beginning in 1843. The Town of Lomira was created by a group of these early settlers who met on April 10, 1849 at the home of Henry M. Luce. Elections were held soon after.  The duties of the town at that time were to create school districts, lay out roads, provide protection against crime and record mortgages.  All town board meetings and elections were held in the homes of residents from 1849-1904.  In 1905, the Brownsville Fire House became the official Town Hall and remained so until 1952 when the present Town Garage was built at Knowles. In 1997, a large meeting room addition was built on the north side of the Garage.  

In 1849, the Town of Lomira was the governing municipality for the entire township including the villages of Lomira and Brownsville.  The Village of Lomira was incorporated in 1899 and Brownsville was incorporated as a village in 1952.  The railroad played an important role in the development of the communities in Lomira Township since one rail line ran through Lomira and another ran through Brownsville and Knowles. 

Additional information can obtained from the Lomira Historical Society which offers information about Lomira area history. The Silver Leaf School House (displays and artifacts) at Sterr Park in the Village of Lomira is open selected days during the summer. The History Room (family histories, church, & cemetery records) at the Lomira Quad-Graphics Community Library is available during regular library hours.

County Road H Resurfacing Project

Please note that Dodge County Highway Department will begin resurfacing work on County Highway H from County Highway Y to State Highway 175 starting in early May.

The work consists of culvert replacements, intersection grading, milling and pulverizing the existing pavement, placing new asphalt over the pulverized surface, curb and gutter at some locations, gravel shoulders, and pavement marking. Preparation work by Dodge County has already been started. Roadway work should be completed by late-June, weather permitting. Center Drive may be closed temporarily while culverts are being placed or when the intersection with County Road H is being paved.

Please note: when the new asphalt is being placed, the paving vehicles will occupy the entire width of the roadway so there will be no access to the roadway during that short period of time. This will last a few hours until the new asphalt is ready for traffic. Other than during the placement of the new asphalt, access for residents and emergency vehicles will be maintained during construction.

Information about the closures is posted on the Dodge County website at: https://www.co.dodge.wi.gov/departments/departments-e-m/highway/road-work-and-weight-limit-postings
