Beloit, a few miles below Janesville, in Rock county, on the railroad from
Chicago to Madison, near the Illinois state line, is also on Rock River, which affords power for manufactories and mills of every description. The town was incorporated in 1845, and is adorned with fine churches and dwellings, spacious streets, and is the seat of that well-known and popular institution, Beloit College. Population about 5,000.
