Muscoda is a village in Grant (mostly) and Iowa counties in the U.S. state of Wisconsin. The population was 1,299 at the 2010 census. Of this, 1,249 were in Grant County, and only 50 were in Iowa County. The Grant County part of the village lies in the town of Muscoda, while the Iowa County portion lies in the town of Pulaski, and is the largest village in the county, and third largest community.History and cultureMuscoda was originally known as English Prairie, named for two English fur traders, Abraham Lansing and Garrit Roseboom, who opened a post at the close of the French and Indian War. Lansing and his son were murdered in 1763 by their French assistants and the fame of the murder kept the name English Prairie alive until 1840.The word Muscoda (pronounced "MUS-co-day") may be a corruption of the Ojibwa (Chippewa) word mashkode, meaning "prairie". The name was evidently taken from Longfellow's Hiawatha, in which it is mentioned several times:"He had struck the deer and bison, On the Muskoday, the meadow"and"On the Muskoday, the meadow, On the prairie full of blossoms"This is most likely how Muscoda earned its name, from the popular meaning of "Prairie of Flowers."Muscoda has billed itself as the "Wisconsin's Morel Capital" since 1982 and hosts the "Morel Mushroom Festival" every year on the weekend following Mother's Day. The event includes carnival rides, tractors pulls, tournaments, merchant stands, food booths, and portable tattoo parlors.
