The first structure in the area was a dam on the northern part of the Koshkonong River. By the late 1880s, Cambridge had grown into a community of about 700 people with shops, hotels, and a post office. Future inventor Ole Evenrude lived there. In 1890 a devastating fire broke out, destroying most of the businesses and parts of Main Street.1900s-2000sThe town was rebuilt by 1910, following the fire, and the invention of the automobile ignited tourism and nearby Lake Ripley became a destination for many Chicago travelers.During the 1980s-1990s, Cambridge was known as the "salt glaze pottery capital of the world" because of the potteries located there.
