Like most areas in early Wisconsin history, Fitchburg began as a rural community with a few businesses catering to the needs of the local farmers (General History). With the introduction and expansion of dairy farming in the 1880s, Fitchburg emerged as a center for dairies that served Madison and the surrounding area (Fitchburg Dairies). The growth of Madison and its encroachment into northern Fitchburg by the late 1970s made land values more profitable for homes than dairy farms. Then in 1983, a Wisconsin Supreme Court ruling established Fitchburg as a city (Fitchburg Becomes a City) and cemented its status as a true suburb. With its lower property values and its close proximity to downtown Madison, Fitchburg attracted small local businesses as well as national and international corporations.

With a population of about 30,000, Fitchburg now has over 750 businesses. The Fitchburg Historical Society is in the early stages of obtaining the history of these businesses to document the transition of Fitchburg from a rural farming community to a diverse community supporting both rural and suburban lifestyles as well as providing affordable locations for leading technologies. If you own or work at a Fitchburg business please help us obtain the history of your business.  You can contact us using our contact webpage or send questions and/or your business history to woodedarchives@gmail.com
