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"!

Property tax bills are mailed to property owners as soon as possible.
Once the Town gets the go ahead to input their numbers, bills are
created and printed, which takes 4 days or more. Then it takes a
couple of days to stuff envelopes and drop off at the post office.
We have been told the earliest we can input numbers may be the
first week of December. You should have your tax bills by the 17th
or 18th at the latest.
Thank you for your patience.
