Village of Fredonia lies between Hwy. 57 and the Milwaukee River on
County Hwy. H. Nestled within its rolling hills, a variety of
architecture can be found from the 1800’s to the present, housing a
population of 2,191 friendly residents.
The seeds of the village were planted
in 1872, when the area, formerly known as Stoney Creek, was donated
by Peter Martin and Peter Paulus to the Milwaukee and Northern
Railway Corporation for the railroad tracks and a depot. The name
Fredonia, which means “free gifts” or “the land where things are
done freely,” was chosen.
Today, Fredonia is a thriving
community sporting an industrial park, fine school system, new home
developments and the rural charm of yesteryear. Come visit and enjoy
a relaxing day in Fredonia or
