ⓘ Vesper, Wisconsin

The village of Vesper began to form in the early 1870s when Girard and Drake built a sawmill on Hemlock Creek to process lumber from the surrounding forests. Their firm also started a store and blacksmith shop. A post office called Vesper opened in 1878. The village was named for vesper sparrows native to the area. In 1894 a wildfire swept in from the woods and burned the mill, along with 23 houses on the west side of the creek.

After the fire, the surrounding stump-the land was sold to farmers. Vesper village was platted in 1897 or 98. Carsten Otto started the Creamery in 1898. In 1902 John Murgatroyd & sons started Vesper brick and tile factory, which operated until the outbreak of the First world war. The two-room brick school was built in 1906. In 1907, Vesper woodworking company began making wooden silos and water tanks out of wood. State Bank of Vesper opened in 1911. The village is included in 1948.
