PALMYRA, WISCONSIN

Welcome to our Web site.  The first settler, Cyrus Norton, arrived in the Scuppernong Valley in 1839. Three years later, a saw mill was built by the Powers brothers, who named the new settlement "Palmyra" after a city in the Syrian desert because of the abundance of sand they found in this area. In 1843, a general store and tavern opened, and later that year the land was surveyed and platted into lots by John Fish. The first town meeting took place in 1846, and the railroad arrived in the fall of 1852. By 1860 the population approached 1,000 residents. Palmyra was officially charted as a Village on May 5, 1874.
