Cicero was originally separated from the Town of Black Creek (then Black Creek's northern half). Petitioners requested the new town in January, 1871. The Outagamie county board determined that it was illegal to divide the town of Black Creek at the time, because bonds issued to build the Green Bay and Lake Pepin railroad through the Town of Black Creek were still outstanding. Therefore, a special session of the Wisconsin state legislature performed the action, assigning $5,000 of the bond debt to the new town of Cicero, and $7,000 to the town of Black Creek. The meeting to elect officers of the town was held April 4, 1871.
Cicero was named for Cicero, New York, the former home of the chairman of the new town.
