City of Middleton Information

In 2007, Middleton was named the number one best city to live in the United States by Money Magazine. In 2011, the same magazine ranked the city number 8. What makes Middleton so consecutively great? Jobs, family activities, shops, and more make it a wonderful place to live. With a border on Lake Mendota and several parks, there’s a lot of green space and water activities to take part in. The walkable downtown has all the necessities, plus unique shops and quirky attractions. There's a pool with a waterside and a splash pool to enjoy during the summer. Many residents make a pretty easy commute to Madison for work, but there are also a couple large employers within the Middleton city limits. The area's golf courses, fun attractions, and recreational areas also attract tourists in the summertime.

Spring Harbor Neighborhood

One of Madison's largest and most populous neighborhoods, Spring Harbor spans the picturesque southwestern corner of Lake Mendota. Spring Harbor area has a little bit of everything that makes Madison great – abundant waterfront property, a variety of schools and public amenities, and several thriving commercial districts. Standing on the shoreline, the view across the water is of the forested University of Wisconsin campus, rather than the downtown, adding to the secluded appeal of Spring Harbor. The neighborhood covers more than 400 acres and is home to more than 1,200 households. Single-family homes and several condo developments makeup the housing stock. The Spring Harbor Neighborhood came of age during the 1950’s, as one-half of all homes were constructed during that decade. Currently, 91% of the neighborhood land is dedicated to housing, with a large mix in type, size, and style of units available. Our neighborhood has access to three major natural resources within its boundaries: 1) Lake Mendota; 2) Merrill Spring; and 3) Kettle Pond. Historic Madison, Inc. has designated four neighborhood sites as historically significant, including two areas containing Native American Effigy Mounds, the Hickory Hill House and the John R. Commons House.

Spring Harbor Neighborhood Information

A large, populous neighborhood on the southwest shore of Lake Mendota, Spring Harbor is a mainly residential area. Single family homes as well as condos and apartments make up the neighborhood, with a large swath of homes that offer shoreline living. The placement of the community creates an out-of-the-city type of feeling, since the view across the lake is a forested piece of the UW campus, rather than the city. Home to seven public parts and a couple public schools, the community is a nice place to raise children away from the hustle and bustle of the city. There are also plenty of recreational activities offered on the shores of Lake Mendota, including a swimming beach.

It is a 10-minute ride from Cross Plains to the Beltline (U.S. Highways 12/14). The Village of Cross Plains is home to approximately 3,500 people, nestled in the northwestern section of Dane County. Cross Plains is the Gateway to Wisconsin's Driftless Area and some of the most scenic and choice recreation areas.  We are a great destination for hiking, biking & fishing.  Cross Plains businesses know most of their customers by name in our Village, which is "Famous for Friendliness."
  • The Only Black Earth in the World! That's the official motto for the Village of Black Earth, named in the 1850s for its rich, loamy soil. Black Earth is surrounded by unglaciated bluffs that are plush and green throughout the summer, alight with color in the fall, and stunning when capped with snow. The village is home to a variety of businesses, a restored train depot that now acts as a museum, a vibrant local newspaper and the Black Earth Creek, a class one trout stream. Starting in June, the popular Concerts in the Park series get underway in Black Earth's Veteran's Memorial Park, located right in the middle of town. The Black Earth Chamber of Commerce and TDS Telecom, the local telephone company, join forces to hire local professional bands who give Tuesday night concerts for six weeks, through the month of July. The music ranges from bluegrass and celtic to country and rock, and there's always plenty of food. In early August, Black Earth relives the tradition of the farming community's pre-harvest celebration with Field Days on Friday night, which includes family-oriented activities all weekend and live music in the beer tent Saturday night. The fun continues through Sunday with the annual Field Days parade and more live music. Kickball and washer tournaments help participants and fans alike work up a thirst, and there's plenty of booth games and rides for the kids.
