An Early Description of

Maple Grove Township

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


Maple Grove Township contains fifty-four square miles, being nine miles in length from east to west, and six miles in width from north to south.  It is bounded on the north by the towns of Barron and Stanley, on the south by the town of Dallas, on the east by the town of Chetek, and on the west by the towns of Clinton and Prairie Farm.  The Menomonie (Red Cedar) and Yellow rivers traverse its northeastern section, the two streams uniting there, and it is well watered by a number of tributary rivulets.  The post-office, formerly at Mooney's mill, seven miles southwest of Barron, has been discontinued.  The population in 1890 was, according to the census returns for that year, 976.
