Town of Hackett

 

The Town of Hackett was formed from parts of the Towns of Prentice and Worcester on December 20, 1887. It was 78 square miles with many streams and the Wisconsin Central Rail Road running through it. Two lakes within the Town form the headwaters for both the north and south forks of the Jump River.  At the time of its formation, the area was covered in dense forest.

 

The only early settlement in the Town of Hackett was along the Central Wisconsin Rail Road line. A small log station known only as "Station 101" and later called Worcester was short-lived. It had a general store and a post office with the first postmaster being J. A. Carlson.

 

After the railroad extended beyond this stop the station was abandoned and the surrounding areas were settled by Swedish immigrants who established farms.
