Ebenezer Brigham (1789-1861), first permanent white settler of Dane County, came here as a prospector in 1828. The inn he built for his miners became popular with travelers on the old Military Road, and Blue Mounds became a well-known landmark. Ebenezer Brigham was a colonel in the Black Hawk War and was prominent in Wisconsin's territorial affairs and early statehood. Charles Brigham came to Blue Mounds in 1886. He became a leader in dairying and soil conservation, and in the religious, cultural and political activities of the area. This park, given to Dane County by the Brigham family, is dedicated to the memory of Charles Ilsley Brigham and Col. Ebenezer Brigham.
