Why Oconomowoc Community?

Located in northwestern Waukesha County,  in the heart of Wisconsin’s Lake Country, is where you will find Oconomowoc.  First settled by the Potowatomi Indians as Coo-No-Mo-Wauk, meaning where the waters meet, or river of lakes.   Oconomowoc’s unmistakable smaller city charm and its many beautiful lakes, offers a rural feel yet is close enough to the urban areas of Milwaukee and Madison.  A walk along the streets of Oconomowoc is like taking a trip back to the turn of the century.  Many old, restored mansions, of a time past, beautify the city and add to its city charm.  With its many lakes, parks, and sporting opportunities Oconomowoc has much to offer the entire family year round. 


The Oconomowoc area offers a variety of quality housing developments and many shopping and dining opportunities.  Oconomowoc has excellent schools whose students continually score above the national averages on the ACT test, and the high school graduation rate is almost 98 percent.  The school district is also home to the Oconomowoc Arts Center, where many of our local student’s talent take center stage.


If you like the theater, Oconomowoc will not disappoint you.  You will also find Theater on Main in downtown Oconomowoc.  Many wonderful musical and theater performances are showcased there each year.


The Oconomowoc Community is a great place to live, work and play.  Come see for yourself!
