Yorkville, Wisconsin, USA

The Land Sales Act of 1784 divided new lands of the United States into townships that were six miles square, with 36 sections of 640 acres each. On July 3, 1836, Wisconsin became a territory with an appointed governor and a five-man legislative council and a population of about 12,000 inhabitants. The Town of Yorkville was organized by the Wisconsin State Legislature on February 7, 1842, and included what are now parts of the Towns of Raymond, Norway and Dover. In 1846, the Town of Yorkville was incorporated with 36 sections. The Town’s borders upon incorporation were what are now Two Mile Road, I-94, County Line Road and Raynor Avenue. By 1893, the settlement known as Union Grove filed for incorporation and became the Village of Union Grove.
