The first settlers in the area were George Elliot and Richard Cooling. In 1843, Cooling began a blacksmith shop. Other settlers soon followed the lead of Elliot and Cooling. The four-corners area, where Cooling established his shop, was a high-traffic area intersected by Main and South Streets (currently Maple Ave.). Construction of churches, shops, companies and the Wisconsin Central Railroad soon followed in the mid to late 1800s. The Northwestern Railroad and the Bug Line played key roles in generating traffic into the Sussex area. The village was incorporated in late 1924 after a second petition was presented.
