Have you noticed the Village Incorporation banners on Main Street? July 10th was the Village's 100th anniversary!


Proclamation for North Prairie: Happy 100th ANNIVERSARY OF INCORPORATION!
2019 is the year North Prairie is celebrating the 100th anniversary of its incorporation! The photograph was taken in 1920 and is looking south on North Main Street. The hill in the middle of the photo in the background is the hill leading up to Prairie View School.

Our community began in 1836 when Thomas Sugden, who was working on his land near Eagleville, took a walk to the top of the hill near Prairieville Elementary School and overlooked a beautiful "Prairie" "North" of his home. Later that year, Thomas returned with two other early pioneers, Mr. William Coats and Mr. William C. Garton. They were soon followed by Charles Ranous (often spelled Raynous) arriving in 1837 who built the first blacksmith shop and the first home in North Prairie.
Originally what was to become North Prairie was known as Brown's Corners located at the intersection of Highways E and ZZ. A stagecoach stop was located there on the NE corner of the intersection. The area population was stagnant until the arrival of the railroad in 1852. With the railroad coming through the area south of Brown's Corners, North Prairie Station became the hub of activity.
