First Recorded Land Deed in Wisconsin

Kaukauna has the first recorded sale of land in the state of Wisconsin in 1793 by Dominique DuCharme. He purchased land from the Chippewa and Menominee nations in 1790, built a log cabin and opened a trading post. Soon after, the riverfront became a major outpost for the fur trading business and Kaukauna became one of the first settlements in Wisconsin.
