Origins of Sun Prairie
The Town of Sun Prairie was first organized as a town in the spring of
1848, with A. W. Dickenson Town Clerk. Its name was derived from the
following circumstances: In the spring of 1836, Hon. A.A. Bird and
party left Milwaukee to locate the Capital of the Territory of
Wisconsin. It was a rainy, cloudy time, and on the morning of the
eleventh day of their journey, while on the prairie, two miles east of
the present village of Sun Prairie, the fog cleared away and the sun
appeared for the first time since they had left Milwaukee. The party
shouted, with one accord, "Sun Prairie"!
