History of Platteville, Wisconsin

The City of Platteville has a rich history dating back to 1827 when the first miners arrived searching for lead. Among those early settlers was John Hawkins Rountree, who would become known as the "father" of Platteville. Rountree and his partner J.B. Campbell took possession of their lead mine, known as the Rountree lode, in November 1827. The city started with a smelting furnace for processing lead ore and a store. According to one account, "the town site was a thicket of the hazel bush with most of the buildings along the road running from Rountree's residence to his furnace."

Two years after the founding of Platteville, John Rountree was appointed postmaster. The community initially applied for a post office under Lebanon, but another town had already claimed that name. Platteville went with its second choice. Over the years, Platteville has grown, but it has always been a vital hub for the surrounding area. Thanks to its central location and extensive transportation network, Platteville has become a destination for businesses and travelers. 

As many locals will tell you, the history of Platteville is deeply intertwined with the history of mining. The City was first surveyed in 1835, and 19 lots were laid out in addition to City Park. The surveyor, Thomas Hugill Sr., came from a mining town in Yorkshire, England, and it is said he laid out Platteville to replicate his native city of narrow streets, small blocks, and a small public square. The irregularity of the roads can be explained partly by the fact that Platteville started as a mining town. When surveying the streets, it was necessary to move and jog stretches of the roads to avoid mine shafts. Other concerns were the creek, its steep ravine, and Rountree Branch.  

The first years in Platteville were challenging. There was little money and few jobs. Many early settlers left for California during the Gold Rush of 1849. Life improved when the first lead smelter began operating in 1851 and more mines opened. The 1850s saw a population boom with an influx of Irish, Cornish, Welsh, and English immigrants working in the mines. 

By 1860, Platteville was a thriving community with a population of over 2,000. The City had five churches, two newspapers, three hotels, three butcher shops, four bakeries, five general stores, and six saloons. In 1862, the Wisconsin Legislature passed a law allowing the incorporation of cities with a population of at least 1,500. Platteville officially became a City on April 7, 1863. 

The first few years of the City's existence were marked by many fires, the most destructive of which occurred in 1865. The fire started in a stable and quickly spread to several adjacent buildings before finally being extinguished. In all, eleven buildings were destroyed at the cost of $60,000. 

Lead mining continued to be the primary industry in Platteville throughout the late 19th and early 20th centuries. However, by the 1930s, the lead industry declined due to competition from other materials and technological changes. Many mines closed, and Platteville's population began to decrease as well.

The City began to diversify its economy in the mid-20th century and is home to various businesses and industries. The University of Wisconsin-Platteville, founded in 1866, is one of the City's largest employers. Other significant employers include Lands' End, a clothing catalog company, and Culver's, a restaurant chain.
