Founded in 1847, Luke Stoughton was a prosperous man who utilized the resources of the Yahara River to power his working mill. As the small town grew, Norwegian immigrants began to pour into the town looking for work. Today, the city of Stoughton clings to its rich Norwegian heritage which can be seen in its quaint downtown streets and famous Syttende Mai festival. In addition to this, the city of Stoughton is accredited to modern day advancements as well. It boasts the state of the art Stoughton Hospital and is home to the well-known companies Uniroyal and B & G Foods; creators of Ortega and Cream of Wheat.
