History of Elm Grove

elm grove signEarly settlers were first drawn to this fertile agricultural area during the mid-1830s. In 1848, the year of Wisconsin’s statehood, more than 650,000 white oak timbers and planks were laid to make it easier to travel the 58 miles from Milwaukee to Watertown. That is how the Village’s main thoroughfare, Watertown Plank Road, began. In 1856, the railroad, later to be known as the Milwaukee Road, laid a track line which intersected the plank road, thus giving rise to even greater community development. Before long, a U.S. Post Office, inn, train depot, general store, mill, and tavern were in operation.

Today, Elm Grove’s government is headed by a village president and overseen by a board of trustees, the seven members of which are elected to two-year terms.
