Welcome to the Village of Hazel Green

We believe the Point of Beginning for the ultimate small town experience is Hazel Green! Our community of 1,200 people is located in southwest Wisconsin, “close enough, but far enough away” to regional population centers such as Dubuque, Iowa, Galena, Illinois and Platteville, Wisconsin. We are proud to support the retail and service businesses of our friends and neighbors within the community, while having convenient, close access to additional services and amenities in larger cities only minutes away.

Nestled between farm land, our beautiful Village is growing. Come grow with us! The Village has an Industrial Park, conveniently located off Highway 80/81 and several residential lots available for you to build your dream home. Few locations will offer you the benefits of living in town, while experiencing the peaceful sights and sounds of living in the country. The Mississippi River, 9 miles west, provides excellent boating, canoeing, hunting and fishing opportunities. Come spend a winter weekend with us after hitting the slopes at one of the ski resorts located within 20 minutes of Hazel Green. The Village boasts a beautiful recreation park, as well as a recently enhanced Memorial Park. Golf courses and pools are located nearby.

Hazel Green is home to Southwestern Wisconsin Community School District, the largest employer in the Village. Our school boasts a low 15:1 student to teacher ratio and has been recognized as a Wisconsin Promise School. The excellent curriculum opportunities at Southwestern include the fact that the school offers more math/science/foreign language classes than any school in the area. Southwestern Wisconsin Community School District received a national award for what Fortune 500 company employees are looking for when relocating! See what our wonderful school system has to offer your family.

From our beginnings as the center of the mining boom, Hazel Green has worked to preserve and recognize our rich heritage. The first permanent settlement in Wisconsin was in Hazel Green in 1825. In 1831, Lucius Lyon began surveying just south of the present day Hazel Green in southwestern Wisconsin. This is the place where all land that was to become Wisconsin would be measured. Today, every property deed in Wisconsin includes a description which is based on the Point of Beginning (POB). The village has several Bed and Breakfasts and antique shops to offer history enthusiasts and antique shoppers.

Whether you are visiting, looking for a piece of history or searching for a place to call home, we are confident it won’t take you long to realize that Hazel Green offers a quality of small town life you can’t find anywhere else.
