Dodgeville Travel Guide: 16 reviews and 35 photos

Dodgeville, a town of just over 4,000 population in the uplands of southwestern Wisconsin, is the seat of Iowa County. The town was named for an early settler, Henry Dodge, who first came to the area to mine lead in 1827. Dodge became the first Territorial Governor of Wisconsin in 1836.

Although small in size and far from any large city, Dodgeville is the corporate headquarters of Lands' End, a global catalog and internet merchant of apparel and home products. In 2002, Lands' End was the fourth largest catalog merchant and the largest seller of apparel online in the world. Lands' End was bought by Sears in 2002; Sears merged with K-mart in 2004.

    I'll bet that people in Iowa County, Wisconsin have to do a lot of explaining to confused people!

    Stephen, the motel where you stayed reminds me of the places my family would stay in when I was a young girl. I had a smile on my face the whole time I read these pages. Here's the real America that few people see.
