Serving our Village & Every Citizen
Dry Prong was incorporated as a village in 1945.
The village received its name when a family moved to the region in the 1870s to build a sawmill. To power the mill, they built a water wheel, only to discover that the creek over which they had built it went dry every summer: the creek was a “dry prong”. The mill was soon rebuilt over a nearby creek which flowed all year, but the name stuck. The creek is now outside the city limits, on Highway 123.
Shane Davis is the current Mayor of the village.
