The assistance of Alan Hedstrom, Nancy Lang and Tim Schigur of the the Commission, and Joe De Rose and Marie North of the State Historic Preservation Office is greatly appreciated. Marilyn Granrud of the Stoughton Public Library provided assistance with the research and a number of Stoughton residents generously shared information and photographs. Unless noted, photographs were taken by Art Wendt. Historic photos are courtesy of district building owners, as noted, or the Stoughton Historical Society.

Some of the information contained in this walking tour is from the “East Side Historic District,” a National Register of Historic Places nomination prepared by Carol Lohry Cartwright in 1997 for the the Commission. The nomination is available at the Stoughton Public Library.
