Sterling and the Chocolate Factory


In the late 1840s, Solomon Juneau,
a French Canadian agent for the American
Fur Company, and founder of Theresa and
Milwaukee, built a dam here on the Rock
River. A flume diverted water to power his
grist and saw mill located 70 yards
downstream. The dam created a flowage of
2,000 acres, which provided fine boating
and fishing, and was known as Lake
theresa. The dam was removed in 1895
Solomon Juneau was a founder of Milwaukee. He built a trading post in the 1830s that he would eventually use as a base to found Theresa, which he named for his mother. He later built his last home just west of here.
