"History of Trempealeau County Wisconsin, 1917":

Chapter 11:


-As transcribed from page 253

Ettrick is the terminus of the new Ettrick & Northern railroad, and evidences of the prosperity and growth which is to follow the opening of that line is already seen.  Outside companies are purchasing building lots, and many new business houses are being projected.  At the present time the village has a creamery, a flour mill, a woolen mill, and a new bank and hotel.

It is situated in the valley of the Beaver Creek in the midst of one of the finest farming regions in western Wisconsin.

Ettrick had its beginning in 1870, when Iver Pederson came over from Frenchville, and erected a store here.  Later the dam was put in, the two mills built and the creamery started.  Gradually a small village grew up at the point.  June 20, 1877, the village was platted by Alfred P. Ford on land of James Corcoran, P. J. Huff, Iver Knudson, Hans Christianson and Iver Pederson.
