History

Prior to the formation of the town of Kronenwetter, the area was composed of several small settlements. Around 1855, a native-American named Keeler dug a canal re-routing the Bull Jr. Creek over a drop to power a small sawmill he built. Other buildings were built and the area became known as Keelerville. In 1857, Sebastian Kronenwetter moved to the area and purchased the Keelerville sawmill, making it quite successful. In the years to follow Kronenwetter continued his success, owning a hotel and building a sawmill in what is now the city of Mosinee. In 1885, he was elected to the Wisconsin State Assembly.
