Welcome to the Town of Lyndon
Sheboygan County, Wisconsin
The Town of Lyndon, named after a Vermont settlement, has a varied topography.
The western half is on the edge of the Kettle Moraine, and is hilly and gravelly. The eastern part is low lying, with several large swamps and soil with more clay.
The early development by the white man was near the two main rivers, the North Branch of the Milwaukee River, flowing southeast to Milwaukee, and the Onion River, sweeping to the southeast, turning to come north to join the Sheboygan River at Sheboygan Falls.
Water power was harnessed for both saw mills and grist mills.
