Kettle Moraine Curling Club was incorporated in November 1962 by a group of individuals most of whom where members of Milwaukee, Wauwatosa and Waukesha Curling Clubs. They were looking for a site to build a new club in the Lake Country Area. The existing site was purchased from Mammouth Springs Canning Company. There were seven founders. One of the founder's mother purchased the mortgage on the property and a conditional use permit to operate a curling club was issued by the City of Delafield on September 27, 1963. The name of the club was derived from the glacier formed Kettle Moraine area where it is located. The first board was elected and they, along with several friends including a number of curlers from Milwaukee, Wauwatosa and Chicago Curling Clubs, bought unsecured construction notes. Remodeling and construction to turn the building, originally a horse barn, into a curling club began in October of 1963. The first ice was made the week of March 6, 1964 and stones for two of the sheets of ice were borrowed from Lake-Shore of Madison ( these stones came from their collection of old stones and were various sizes and shapes ). Stones for two additional sheets of ice were donated by two of the KMCC's members. On March 15th, the first full day of curling was held. The participants were owners and potential buyers of unsecured construction notes who were provided with a wild game dinner sponsored by four of the members. Donations were received after the dinner for the curling stone fund.
