Bay View's Rolling Mill Near this site in Bay view stood the Milwaukee Iron Company rolling mill, the first major heavy industry in the region and and important producer of iron and steel for the Midwest. The mil, which opened in 1868, transformed ore from Dodge County and Lake Superior area mines into iron products including thousands of tons of rail for the region's growing railroads. By 1885, more than 1500 people were employed at the plant, some recruited from the iron-producing districts of the British Isles, and the village of Bay View grew from a rural crossroads into an industrial community surrounding the rolling mill. On May 5, 1886, the mill was the scene of a major labor disturbance. Nearly 1500 strikers from around Milwaukee marched on the Bay View mill to dramatize their demand for an eight-hour work day. The local militia, called to the scene by Governor Jeremiah Rusk, fired on the crowd, killing seven people. The mill closed in 1929, and the buildings were demolished a decade later. But the community of Bay View remains: a neighborhood of mill workers houses, shops and churches. Erected 1985

Old Market Place From as early as the 12th century there was a town market here. By 1340 there was as many as 102 stalls, although later the Black Death reduced the population and market by nearly half. This primitive map of 1714 shows the Butter Cross where dairy products were kept cool: the Cage, where miscreants were locked up: and Poultry Hill where chickens, turkeys, ducks and geese were sold. The Shambles was the butchers' market, shoemakers and leather workers occupied Shoemakers Hall and Tanners Row (now King Street). Processing leather was an important industry in Sudbury. The bustling crowds that visited the stalls were kept refreshed at numerous inns and ale houses. From Sudbury Court Records, 1568: ... Pigs, dogs and rats nose among the offal and other waste from slaughering, thrown onto the ground around the Butchers Shambles. All the butchers here were reported to the Borough Court - for casting horns in the highwaye ...

This plaque is dedicated to Dodie Smith (1896 - 1990) author of "The Hundred and One Dalmatians" Just before midnight they came to the market town of Sudbury. Pongo paused as they crossed the bridge over the River Stour. "Here we enter Suffolk", he said, triumphantly. They ran on through the quiet streets of old houses and into the market square. They ran on through hoped they might meet some dogs and hear if any news of the puppies had come at the Twilight Barking, but not so much as a cat was stirring. While they were drinking at the fountain, church clocks began to strike Midnight. Extracted from "The Hundred and One Dalmatians" Unveiled by the Mayor of Sudbury Councillor Mrs. Dee Braham on Tuesday 26th March 2002
