Fitchburg

Fitchburg is a suburb of Madison Wisconsin.  It's population has grown to almost 25,000 over the past several years.  Fitchburg is not like an average city where you might have a downtown area to shop or stroll.  Rather, fitchburg is spread over about 35 square miles.  Children living in this area go to several area schools such as Verona, Oregon and  Madison. 

Fitchburg has five sites on the National Register of Historic Places.  They include Fox Hall, a Greek revival style stone house built by the Fox family in 1856 located along County Highway "M", the Mann House (Quivey's Grove restaurant), built in 1855, the Italianate McCoy House on Syene Road built between 1857 and 1861 by tobacco farmer Benjamin Brown, plus 13 original buildings of the Wisconsin Industrial School for Girls built in 1932, currently known as Oakhill Correctional Institute, and 1852 Swan Creek Farm is the most recent addition to the National Register; it is located along Lacy Road, close to County Highway "MM".

Fitchburg officially became a city on April 26, 1983. Driven by Madison's continued encroachment into its boundaries and annexations of Fitchburg lands, the township government pursued a method of petitions signed by a percentage of Fitchburg's residents in order to declare itself a city. The fight to become a City was finally determined by a Wisconsin Supreme Court decision which allowed incorporation to proceed.
