Eldorado, Fond du Lac, WI

The Town of Eldorado lies in the northern part of Fond du Lac County. Its surface is undulating, covered with forest trees in the eastern part, and in the south and west portions with oak openings and hay marsh. The marsh is said to be rather of a superior quality for the production of wild hay.

The first settlement in this town was made in 1846, by Job Humphrey, Harvey Wheeler, M. S. Barnett. Theodore Sheldon, Philander Hall, Mr. Woolcott, and others. The settlement increased very fast after its first commencement, and in April of that year the first town election was held. M. S. Barnett was elected Chairman of the Board of Supervisors, and James Cowhan was elected Town Clerk.

Fond du Lac River takes its rise in this town. The county is well watered with springs and small streams. Soucha Creek runs through the town, and furnishes several water privileges. The first school taught was in the north part of the town, by John F. Steele.
