The city of Sun Prairie Wisconsin is located in Dane County and is a suburb of Madison Wisconsin. The 2000 census put the city's population at 20,369. Sun Prairie is the 5th fastest growing city in Wisconsin. It is expected to double in population by the year 2020. We are located just east of Madison on Highway 151. The highway has recently been expanded to three lanes starting from I-94 and going all the way to Main Street in Sun Prairie. The city is preparing for the big expansion in population by expanding the city to the West, past Highway 151 and to Highway "C". Highway C has also been expanded and it runs four lanes from Highway 19 and right up until it intersects with Highway 151, South of Hoepker Road. There is a building boom going on in this new area with a brand new Copps Food Store at the corner of Hwy 19 and Hwy C. Walgreens is also building a new store on this corner.
Sun Prairie History:
In 1837 a group of forty five men were commissioned by President Van Buren to go to Madison to build a territory capitol. They left Milwaukee and arrived fourteen days later on June 9th, 1837. Because they had spent many days of their travel in the rain, when the arrived at the edge of the prairie with the sun shinning, they carved the name "Sun Prairie" into a tree. One of the men that was amount the party was August Bird. Charles Bird came to "Sun Prairie" two years later and was the first settler in the area. Today, one of Sun Prairie's main streets is "Bird Street."
Georgia O'Keeffe, the famous artist (1887-1986 ), was born on a dairy farm in Sun Prairie Wisconsin and is probably the most famous person from the area. There is a Georgia O'Keeffe celebration every year and there is a street named after her.
Sun Prairie is flanked by Windsor on the West and Marshall to the East. In fact, Highway 19, which goes towards Windsor is called Windsor Street in Sun Prairie.
