National Avenue was originally known as the Mukwanago Plank Road, a toll road that ran between Milwaukee and Mukwanago, in Waukesha County. It was renamed for the National Soldiers Home
in Wood, Wisconsin, about a mile east of here. It is a very busy thoroughfare that runs northeast-southwest from Milwaukee to Mukwanago and eventually, to Troy and almost to Delavan. When it intersects the heavily used UPRR (formerly C&NW) double-track mainline, National Avenue jogs under the tracks, concurrently with S. 84th Street.
