City History

Governor Willis A. Gorman signed Dodge County into existence in 1855. Because of the county’s thick, rich, black soil, farms were established, and the settlement at Mantorville began to grow rapidly. Garment and shoemakers took up shop here, as did a drug store and other businesses. But even with these flourishing businesses popping up around the county, the main industry remained agriculture. Today, crop and dairy farms still dominate, but the cities of the county are still filled with thriving businesses. The county is now home to just over 20,000 residents, and enjoys a low unemployment rate.
