A Little History
The Town of Burke officially began in 1851 when it separated from Windsor. Burke was named for Irish statesman Edmund Burke, as most of its original residents were Irish. The town is set to be annexed by the City of Madison, the Village of De Forest, and the City of Sun Prairie by 2036 giving the Town 185 years of history.
