The Founding Fathers of Wauwatosa were brothers Charles and Thomas Benjamin Hart from New England. In 1835 Charles Hart settled where an old Indian trail forded the Menomonee River. About 1838 the brothers built a water powered sawmill across the street from this site. Later they built a grist mill on this site to grind local farmer's grain. Because of these structures the first name of this community was "Harts Mills." In 1840 the settlement name was officially changed to Wauwatosa.
