Founded 1852

Seat: Wautoma

Largest city: Berlin

Waushara County was established by an act of the Wisconsin Legislature on February 15, 1851. It originally consisted of a single organized Town of Waushara. In 1852 the county achieved full organization. The county seat was first located at Sacramento and was relocated to Wautoma in 1854 after a bitter fight between proponents of the two places.
The name is of Native American origin and is believed to mean "good land".
