Did You Know …

Reedsburg gets its name from a man named David C. Reed, one of the earliest settlers of the area. Reed built a saw and grist mill on the Baraboo River, and shelters made of wood to house the laborers. Those shelters, which became known as Shanty Row, once stood near what is now known as Main Street.

The town is also known as the Butter Capital of the World, because in the late ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s, Reedsburg’s milk-processing plant churned out more butter than anywhere else in the world.
