Village of Dousman

Welcome to Village of Dousman

Shortly after the Chicago & Northwestern Railroad built its line through in 1881, the Village of Dousman came into existence.  The building of the early railroads meant prosperity and, as they found out across the state, skilled craftsmen and merchants soon opened business to serve the needs of the outlying communities.  By the end of 1882, businesses included: a hotel, Cassidy's saloon, Thomas's store also the post office; Hardell's grain elevator and lumber yard, a blacksmith and wagon shop.

The new village sportingly referred to by some as "Bullfrog Station" because of surrounding bogs and marshes, was characteristic of the hundreds of Wisconsin "railroad villages" that sprang up during the 19th century.  It was formally named "Dousman" in honor of Talbot C. Dousman, who was considered the first settler in the Town of Ottawa - his claim dating to 1837.

Located in the midst of a dairy and farming community, Dousman prospered, as it does today.  Also of importance after the turn of the century was the states first fish hatchery known as the "Trout Pond" (now known as Mill Pond) and the marsh beds located some miles south of the village

To this day, the Village of Dousman is still known for its frogs and is considered home of the Wisconsin State Frog Jump! The local baseball team is called the Dousman Frogs and the annual frog jumping competition takes place every year during Dousman's Derby Days.
