The village of Fredonia lies between Hwy. 57 and the Milwaukee River on County Hwy. H. Nestled within its rolling hills, a variety of architecture can be found from the 1800s to the present, housing a population of 2,200 friendly residents.

The seeds of the village were planted in 1872, when the area, formerly known as Stony Creek, was donated by Peter Martin and Peter Paulus to the Milwaukee and Northern Railway Corporation for the railroad tracks and a depot. The name Fredonia, which means "free gifts" or "the land where things are done freely," was chosen.

Today, Fredonia is a thriving community sporting an industrial park, fine school system, new home developments, and the rural charm of yesteryear.  Come visit and enjoy a relaxing day in Fredonia or one of our many interesting events.

Stony Hill School, in the Town of Fredonia (Waubeka area), is the "Birthplace of National Flag Day". This is just north of Ozaukee County Pioneer Village, on Hwy. I, and is a great part of the tourist loop.

Waubeka is home to the National Flag Day Foundation Americanism Center. The Center’s 13,000 square foot building sits on fifteen acres of land. The Center offers the Avenue of Flags, which displays all 27 star configurations of The American Flag, a commemorative outdoor courtyard and a full museum featuring military and local memorabilia. The museum includes a room devoted to Bernard J. Cigrand, the Father of Flag Day. The museum is open on the third Sunday of each month from 1-4 p.m. or by appointment.

The National Flag Day Foundation is a nonprofit organization which teaches Americanism. The Foundation hosts several events each year. Don’t miss the main event – the National Observance of Flag Day held the second Sunday in June. The observance includes a program at the Cigrand Memorial in Waubeka, a 100 unit parade, family day with music, refreshments and activities and fireworks at the Americanism Center. The Foundation also holds a Valentine Dinner & Auction event.

Enjoy Waubeka’s rich history anytime by walking, driving or biking the self guided Chief Waubeka Trail.
