Welcome to Fredonia
The Village of Fredonia lies between Hwy. 57 and the Milwaukee River on County Highway H (Fredonia Avenue). Nestled within its rolling hills, a variety of architecture can be found from the 1800’s to the present, housing a population of 2,211 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 one of our many interesting events.
