The Town of Byron was organized in 1846. The territory of the town contains approx. 23,040 acres. It is bounded on the North by the Town of Fond du Lac, on the East by the Town of Eden on the South by the Town of Lomira, which is in Dodge County, and on the west by the Town of Oakfield.
The Town of Byron is mainly agriculture land where many Dairy farms are located. In the last few years the small dairy farm number has decreased. Near the central part of the Town many Stone Quarries are located which is the main source of employment in the Town, other businesses that are in the Town are, Abel Landscaping on Hwy. 175, Park Cheese co. located on County Road F west of Hwy. 175, Saint Wire company located on County V, Mid-park Nurseries on Lost Arrow Road, Tecre co. located on Lost Arrow Road, Ehlert Welding on 175 in village of Byron, North Mfg, on Hwy. 175 in village of Byron and other small business.
The Town has much potential for development with the CN railroad and U.S. Hwy. 41, which runs almost through the center of the Town from north to south. Over the past years subdivisions are being developed and many new homes are being built. On memorial day 2005 the town dedicated a memorial to honor all the people that have served our country since we were established as a Town. There are 727 names on this memorial, many who gave their lives so we can enjoy the freedom we have today. The Memorial which was built with all donated money, is a tribute to all who donated time and money to this cause. All of the citizens of the Town of Byron can be proud of this tribute to all who have served their country. Many donations came from people who do not live in the Town of Byron.
With comprehensive planning, we hope to keep our “Rural Atmosphere”.
