Medard Dupuis was active in having this town of Savanna incorporated as a city, and was elected its first mayor in 1874. In 1847 he established himself in the lumber business in Savanna, which became the distributing point for lumber through a region extending as far eastward as Freeport and Rockford, and almost as far westward into Iowa. In 1852 he erected the sawmill, one of the first upon the river, which was so long a prominent feature of the town and continued in operation until 1877. He continued in the same business until the close of his life, and was one of the oldest lumbermen on the Mississippi.
