About Stoughton, WI
Located on the scenic Yahara river, this beautiful community has many historic neighborhoods and a historic downtown that features the Stoughton Opera House. The town also has two other unique claims to fame: It’s the birthplace of the coffee break (part of the Coffee Break Festival), and home to the Stoughton High School Norwegian Dancers.
Stoughton was founded in 1847 by Luke Stoughton, a native of Vermont. He purchased a plot of land in the Wisconsin Territory, built a mill using the power of the Yaraha River. Norwegian Immigrants soon began to flock to Stoughton looking for work. (Click here for more on Stoughton’s history.)
