OREGON, WISCONSIN AT A GLANCE
Nestled in south-central Wisconsin, the town of Oregon is an old-fashioned bedroom community with a quaint village and friendly residents.
Back in 1841, a man named Bartlet Runey swept into Dane County and set up shop. Three years later, others had followed, and the area was on its way to becoming a town. Originally known as “Rome Corners,” it was eventually incorporated as Oregon in 1881.
Oregon is the embodiment of apple-pie Americana. It’s the kind of place where local businesses form special bonds with residents, and everyone takes time to say hello when walking down the street.
Several mom-and-pop eateries service the town — as do a handful of boutique shops and sports facilities, including a public pool. And in the picturesque village, benches line the finely groomed streets, and the town’s iconic Red Brick School House won a slot on the National Register of Historic Places.
The area is considered “sparse suburban,” which translates to larger lawns and more space to breathe — and play! Unlike other places in the country, you won’t find homes built on top of each other in Oregon, Wisconsin.
What is there to do? To be honest, there’s not a whole lot going on in Oregon proper besides what we’ve already mentioned. However, Madison, Wisconsin, one of the state’s most dynamic and progressive cities, is only a 20-minute drive away.
An oasis for people who love the outdoors, Oregon boasts lots of green space. But if you’re moving to town from a warm climate, prepare yourself for Wisconsin winters! The mercury frequently slips below freezing, and snow is the norm between late December through early March.
MOVING TO OREGON, WISCONSIN
Are you considering moving to a small town near Madison, Wisconsin? If so, Oregon may be for you. The area has made CNN Money’s “100 Best Small Places to Live” list, and due to its proximity to Madison, property values are bound to increase over the next two decades.
About 50 percent of residents have college degrees, and the schools, from elementary to high school, are top-rated. Since you can still find reasonably priced homes in the area, it’s quickly becoming a popular spot for young couples starting families. It’s also a cozy option for retirees, who represent about 12 percent of the local population.
Homes in the area run anywhere from $150,000 to $800,000, and crime is very low.
