Located in the central part of the county, 22km (14 mi) N of Watertown and 76 km (47 mi) NW of Juneau.
Settled in 1844 by Martin Rich who named the village Victory as it was chosen over the already existing communities of Fox Lake and Watertown as the county seat for Dodge County. In 1848, the community was renamed Dodge Center because of its central location in the county. Since a town by the same name already existed in Wisconsin, Juneau became the community's name. The name honors Solomon Juneau (1793-1856), first Postmaster and Mayor of Milwaukee. (US-T131/Romance of WI Place Names/p62)
