Arnott, Wisconsin facts for kids
In 1872, the Green Bay and Western Railroad laid tracks through a portion of what is now Arnott. During 1881 and 1882, William Arnott, Joseph Bremmer, and Calvin Richmond canvassed the countryside raising money to build a railroad depot. The depot, and the settlement around it, was named after Arnott, a local farmer who served as chairman of the town of Stockton and the Portage County Board, and who was elected to the Wisconsin Legislature in 1876.
