More About the Merton, WI Real Estate Market
In 1837 the first white settler, Ralph Allen, staked claim in what is now within the Township of Merton. Throughout the 1840’s more and more settlers came and the area attracted merchants, nobleman, theologians, teachers, military, and farmers that used Merton's abundant waterways of rivers and lakes to power mills.
Later, after the railroad came to Merton in 1899, the lakes became an important source of ice used to refrigerate the railroad cars. The gravel pit, feed mill, and blacksmith shop were all early businesses that still exist today. The lakes also attracted wealthy families that flocked here to their summer cottages or one of the many hotel resorts like the Interlachen and the Idelhaven. As time when on and the popularity of the automobile grew, several small cottages began to spring up along the lakeshores and enabled many Milwaukeans to rent a summer cottage on the weekends.
Merton Community Information
Some lake communities, like Pine Lake, took alarm to this new growing trend which resulted in residents restricting dance halls, public boat launches, livery and the such from being built and furthermore required a minimum of 150’ of lake frontage. Other lakes like Okauchee Lake are known even today for more affordable cottages and the convenience of restaurants and bars accessible by water.
The Town of Merton still maintains an overall rural feel even with the prolific development of subdivisions on what used to be farmers’ fields. It is what makes the Lake Country area so special, driving past cows grazing while only 5 minutes from Target!
