About Us

The Town of Pierce is a small town of about 825 people, located right on the shore of Lake Michigan, in Kewaunee County Wisconsin. Within the town are several Lakes including East Alaska Lake, West Alaska Lake, and Krohns Lake. The Town of Pierce itself archived its political foothold in April of 1857 from a romantic Pioneer by the name of James Pierce. James was a Canadian insurgent who rose against the Queen, was captured, and later escaped. He found himself in the great forest of Kewaunee County and made his home on the present County Farm in the heart of Pierce town. After his farm was established, many other pieces of farmland were developed in the town and farming is still a major part of Pierce town today. You can read about the Pierce family below!
