"Trempealeau County" by Clarence J. Gamroth: 

Volume 1A:
 

Communities:  North Creek


North Creek, which lies northeast of Arcadia, was principally settled by Polish people.  They came from that part of Poland which is known as Szlash (Silesia).  Upon their arrival in Wisconsin, they immediately embraced the soil and began to cultivate.  They started from scratch.  We cite the story of Lawrence Misch.  Upon his arrival with his wife in Trempealeau, his whole fortune was $50.00.  He left his wife there and walked to North Creek.  Here he was received by some friends who helped him to settle.  In a short while his wife joined him.  This was in 1873.  They settled on a 160 acre farm in Korpal Valley.  Of the 160 acres only 9 were cultivated.

The Catholic church at North Creek was built in 1876.  It burned in 1919.  Before the church was built, services were held in homes.
