The Village of Oregon is a community of over 9500 people, located approximately 5 miles south of Madison. Access to Oregon from Madison is via Hwy US Hwy 14. The Village of Oregon was settled in 1841. The first house was constructed in 1843. After more people moved into the area, the village became incorporated in 1881.
Many of Oregon's historical buildings still stand in the downtown district, including the Netherwood Block on the south, the Badger Cycle Company building and original water tower on the southeast on Janesville Street, and numerous business lining the west side of North and South Main Street. The Red Brick School, one of the more distinguishable structures in the village, built in 1922 as the high school, stands north of downtown.
The Village has two elementary schools (Netherwood Knoll and Prairie View), each with between 400 and 500 students enrolled, one Middle School (Oregon Middle School) and one high school with approximately 1200 students.
Oregon is just minutes from the State capital and the University of Wisconsin. Featuring professionally designed golf courses, access to major traffic arteries and a Class A school system, Oregon, WI is a fabulous choice for anyone to call home.
