The first town is Waunakee (pop. 8,995). the “only Waunankee in the world”, as they like to point out. It was founded as Leicester in 1870; the following year, two early settlers persuaded the St. Paul Railroad, via cash and land, to relocate through their property instead of the original intended location two miles north. A post office and other buildings sprouted up, and the village incorporated as Waunakee (one Native American meaning: “the fair and pleasant valley”) in 1893. For about three miles, Highway 113 joins with 19 before heading south to Madison. Highway 19, meanwhile, continues east and meets up with a fast-growing crossroads on the south end of Windsor, crossing both I-39/90/94 and U.S. Highway 51 within a mile of each other.
