The City of Appleton shares its history with Lawrence University. Appleton was incorporated first as a village in 1853 and later as a city in 1857. Area business has been responsible for Appleton's economic prosperity and progressive attitude. The paper industry, beginning with the building of the first paper mill in the city in 1853, has been at the forefront of the development of Appleton, In order to provide electricity to this industry, the nation's first hydro-electric central station began operation in Appleton on September 30, 1882. Not too long afterward, in August of 1886, Appleton was the site for another national first, the operation of a commercially successful electric streetcar company. Electric lights replaced gas lamps on College Avenue in 1912.
