Turtle Lake, Wisconsin

 Village History

    The Village of Turtle Lake's history dates back to 1875 with its first settlers of European descent.  Stephen Richardson was attracted to the area because of the vast hardwoods and pine forests.  Mr. Richardson named the area Skowhagen after his hometown in Maine.  During the first years that the Richardson family was here the settlement consisted of Native Americans by about half.  By 1879, Richardson erected a saw mill, Turtle Lake's first and principal industry for a number of years, and its first business, a general store that was later sold to L.M. Richardson.  A post office was also established in 1879 with Stephen Richardson as postmaster.

    Before Turtle Lake was established, Knapp Stout Lumber Company had several logging camps on both shores of Upper and Lower Turtle Lake.  The lakes were named by government surveyors because of all the turtle that were depositing their eggs on the shores while they were surveying.

    After the Chicago, Northwestern railroad was extended about five miles north of Turtle Lake, the Knapp Stout Lumber Co. began to ship their supplies to be unloaded at Turtle Lake, referring to the lakes and not the town.  When the post office was established it was natural to continue the use of Turtle Lake rather than Skowhagen; thus, the change was made.  On February 12, 1898, the Village of Turtle Lake was platted on land belonging to Joel Richardson, nephew of Stephen Richardson.
