History of Isaar Settlement
Isaar is located in the northeast corner in the town of Seymour. Isaar, named after the Isar River, in Germany, was founded in the late 1860s by Bavarian immigrants. The town's founding families were as follows: Kroner, Hackl, Ebert, Liebhabers, Krause, Wirth, Schmidt, Brugger, Hartl, and Noll.
In 1893, the Isaar Community’s request for a church was granted by the Roman Catholic Bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Green Bay, Sebastian Gebhard Messmer. The St. Sebastian Church, named in honor of Bishop Messmer's patron saint, Saint Sebastian, was a wood building constructed by Isaar citizens on John Kroner's land (which is believed to have been donated). This church was finished in 1893 at a price of $100. A cemetery was grown to the north of the church two years later. The rectory was constructed in 1916 and Isaar Church was no longer a mission. In late December 1929 a fire destroyed the original church. The brick church that stands here today was built shortly after the wood church burned down.
Ebert’s Store, which was the general store, grocery store, saloon and dance hall was constructed in 1900 and is today the Isaar Inn. South of Ebert’s store was the blacksmith shop built in the 1890s. Isaar's First School was built one mile north of Isaar in 1898 Known as Seymour School District No.7. In 1902 a tavern was opened up by John Kroner to the North of the church cemetery. A sawmill was opened, by John Schmidt and Henry Wirth, 200 feet east of Kroner's Tavern in 1908. The first Cheese factory was built in 1890 by Jacob Noll just a mile north of Isaar. In 1918 another Factory, A cooperative cheese factory was started by Isaar farmers. This factory which is just north of the Isaar Inn, was operational up until 1993.
