About Monona, Wisconsin
Did you know that Monona was actually part of the Town of Blooming Grove? It did not become its own village until 1938, and at that time Monona mainly consisted of farmland and summer homes. An even more interesting fact about Monona is that during street construction in the 1940s they discovered an Indian burial mound; it is thought to have been built 1,500 years ago by the Hopewell Indians. Luckily, the mound was saved by the Wisconsin Archeological Society and local citizens, and it is now known as Indian Mounds Park. In addition to a rich history, Monona is right on the outskirts of Madison, so there are plenty of opportunities for employment, entertainment, and options for education.
