Below is some general information about Stoughton:
Stoughton is a city in Dane County, Wisconsin, United States. It straddles the Yahara River about 20 miles southeast of the state capital, Madison. Stoughton is part of the Madison Metropolitan Statistical Area. As of the 2010 census, the population was 12,611. Known for its Norwegian heritage, Stoughton hosts a citywide celebration of Syttende Mai, the Norwegian constitution day. Part of the city’s celebration of its Norwegian heritage is the Stoughton Norwegian Dancers dance group, sponsored by Stoughton High School.
Stoughton was founded in 1847 by Luke Stoughton, an Englishman from Vermont. Many Norwegian immigrants settled in the town from 1865 through the early 1900s. Stoughton also claims to be the birthplace of the Coffee Break, and hosts a small yearly parade to celebrate the distinction. For much of the history of the area, Stoughton has been the second-largest and economically important city in Dane County after Madison. In 1919, Stoughton Wagon Company began putting custom wagon bodies on Model T chassis; by 1929 Ford was by far the biggest seller of station wagons. On August 18, 2005, an F3 tornado cut a 10-mile path across rural subdivisions and farms north of Stoughton, killing one person and damaging hundreds of homes. In June 2010 a third water tower was built. After it was finished, the town’s name was painted on either side; on one side the painters mistakenly left out the second T, spelling it STOUGHON. The mistake was corrected soon after at no cost to the city.
As of the census of 2010, there were 12,611 people, 5,133 households, and 3,296 families residing in the city. The population density was 2,563.2 inhabitants per square mile. There were 5,419 housing units at an average density of 1,101.4 per square mile. The racial makeup of the city was 95.1% White, 1.4% African American, 0.2% Native American, 1.3% Asian, 0.4% from other races, and 1.5% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 1.8% of the population. There were 5,133 households of which 33.6% had children under the age of 18 living with them, 49.3% were married couples living together, 10.7% had a female householder with no husband present, 4.2% had a male householder with no wife present, and 35.8% were non-families. 29.4% of all households were made up of individuals and 12.4% had someone living alone who was 65 years of age or older. The average household size was 2.41 and the average family size was 2.99.
Stoughton is incorporated as a city under the Wisconsin Statutes and has an elected mayor and 12-member City Council consisting of aldermen elected to three-year terms from four districts; the terms are staggered so that one seat is up for election in each of the four districts each spring. As in all of Wisconsin, a special district is charged with running the public schools in and around Stoughton; this entity, the Stoughton Area School District, is run by an elected Board of Education.
