An Early Description of Dover Township

-- From the "Historical and Biographical Album of the Chippewa Valley Wisconsin, 1891-2" page 337.


Dover Township is nine miles in length, from east to west, and six miles in width, from north to south.  It contains fifty-four square miles, and is bounded on the north by the town of Chetek, on the south by Dunn and Chippewa counties, on the east by Chippewa county, and on the west by the town of Dallas.  The Chetek river joins the Menomonie (Red Cedar) river in the northwest section, and the latter stream runs almost due south, through the extreme western portion of the township.  There are numerous small streams, including Ten Mile creek.  The number of inhabitants is included in the figures given in the census returns for 1890 as the population of the township of Chetek, Dover formerly forming the southern half of that township.
