European control of the area was first documented as part of the Northwest Territory in 1789 which was succeeded by the Wisconsin Territory in 1836. The Village was founded in 1848 and named after its first settler, Alonzo E. Horton (1813-1909), who later was one of the founders and developers of San Diego, CA. In 1873, Hortonville was serviced by its first railroad and was also the site of one of the first match light factories in the world. On August 11, 1894, Hortonville was incorporated as a village.
