Town of Sharon, Portage County, WI

Sharon is a town in Portage County, Wisconsin.  The population as of January 1, 2020 for Town of Sharon is 2078.  This makes Sharon the county's 5th most populous community.  The unincorporated communities of Ellis, North Star and Polonia are located within the town.  Sharon is the second largest town (out of 17 towns) in Portage County in terms of geographic size, encompassing an area of approximately 41,488 acres or 64.9 miles of which 64.3 square miles of it is land and .6 square miles (or 384 acres) is water.

The Town of Sharon is located on the northern edge of Portage County and is bordered on the north by Marathon County, on the south by the Town of Stockton, on the east by the Towns of New Hope and Alban, and on the west by the Towns of Hull and Dewey.

Up until 1960, the Town of Sharon was a typical rural agriculture-based community with a steadily declining population, due mostly to the changes in agriculture economy.  Thus, the decade of the 1960's marked the end of the Town of Sharon's declining population and the beginning of a growth period that continues today.

The region was first wooded and attracted lumbermen.  When it was cleared of trees, it became farmland.  Among the pioneer settlers were Irish and German Catholics who set down roots where Ellis is today.  In 1857, the first Polish family settled in this area, creating the first Polish rural settlement in the State and the second in the United States.   Coming along with these Polish emigrants was their respect of the land, religion, family and an ethic of hard work.

Polonia was named by a Polish priest when he established a new Catholic church east of Ellis.  By the 1900's at least 10,000 people, more than one-third of the Portage County population were of Polish descent.  Polish Americans continued the legacy given by their ancestors. This legacy is also evident by the dedication of Highway 66 as the Polish Heritage Highway.
