Introduction to Whitewater, Wisconsin
Whitewater was established at the confluence of Whitewater Creek and Spring Brook. The city got its current name from the white sand in the local watersheds. Much of the city’s development occurred after 1853, when the railroad line in Wisconsin passed through Whitewater. In 2006, a historical overview of the city of Whitewater was published by Fred Kraege, a local historian.
