Dodge County is situated in the southeastern part of the state. It contains twenty-five townships, or 5.76,000 acres of land. Nearly 400,000 acres are under cultivation. The average price of improved land is about $40 an acre. Nearly all the land is owned by actual settlers. The eastern part of the county is heavily timbered and is somewhat hilly. The northern part is prairie and openings, with a rich black loam soil and a gently rolling surface. The southern part is mostly what is called ridge land and marsh, and the quality of the soil is not so good. The county is well supplied with streams, which afford an abundance of water and good mill privileges. The largest of these is Rock River, which flows through the center of the county, furnishing several water powers of great value. The railroad privileges are unsurpassed. There are four roads running through the county, and thirteen of the twenty-two towns are on the line of a railroad. On the east side of Rock River there is an iron ore mine of great richness. The ore is of excellent quality and immense in quantity. It is owned and worked by the Milwaukee Iron Company. A number of very thriving and prosperous manufactories are located in the county; two woolen mills, agricultural implement and machine factories, cheese factories, etc. In population the county ranks the third in the state; in assessed valuation the fifth. Beaver Dam, a city of over 5,000 inhabitants, a portion of the cities of Watertown and Waupun lie in this county. Wheat raised in 1875, 126,230; of oats, 24,713; of corn, 25,447; of barley, 5,652; of rye, 991; of hops, 155; of tobacco, 17; total, 183,195 acres. Proportion of timber, 10 per cent; of prairie 35 per cent; of openings, 35 per cent; of marsh, 20 per cent Population, 48,394, including 29,537 natives of the states and 18,857 foreigners.
