The Village of Lomira, in Dodge County, Wisconsin, is located at the crossroads of State Highways 49, 67 and 145, along with Interstate 41.
Prior to the arrival of white settlers, the son of Chief Black Hawk supposedly camped in the vicinity while blazing a trail from Milwaukee to Green Bay. There is no record of a settlement at Lomira prior to 1849. The village was originally called Springfield, but in 1849, the name was changed to Lomira. The village is a namesake of Elmira Schoonover, daughter of Sam Schoonover, an early settler.
Lomira is in an agricultural area, which is reflected in the nature of many of the businesses in the village. In 1985, printing became a significant presence with the opening of the Quad Graphics production plant, the largest single printing facility in the Western Hemisphere. In 2007, Kondex Corporation, a farm machinery and equipment manufacturer, opened a facility in a newly created industrial park.
