History

Originally called Winneshiek, the municipality when it was incorporated took its name from the generosity of Tutty Baker, who was credited with running a "Free Port" on the Pecatonica River. Although Stephen Douglas won the election and retained his US Senate seat, his reply to a question on slavery alienated the South, which called it the "Freeport Doctrine Heresy," and split the Democratic Party (United States) Party. The population density was 2,316.9 people per square mile (894.8/kmĀ²). Hispanic (US Census) or Latino (US Census) of any race were 2.12% of the population.
