Is situated at the junction of the Western Union and Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul Railroads, on sec 21, Town 3, Range 22, East. Seven miles west of Racine, twenty-three miles south of Mil- waukee and sixty one miles from Chicago, was commenced as a business place in the year 1872. The grounds upon which the depot is built were purchased from Mr. H. Johnson, who, settled in the country when it was comparatively new, coming from Schuyler, Herkimer Co., N. Y. in 1844. Shortly after the depot and other Railroad buildings were erected, Mr. Johnson commenced the building of the "Johnson House," a neat, substantial and commodius Hotel, in close proximity to the two railways, completing the same in 1873. Mr. H. M. Fitz- gerald, an accommodating and courteous landlord, is the present pro- prietor of the Hotel, having leased it for a term of years. In 1874, Mr. S. Parker, platted twenty-five acres of his lands laying adjacent to the junction, naming the plat "Parkersville," and putting them into the market, readily disposed of several lots,upon which are now erect- ed tasty and comfortable cottages and several business buildings.
