Cross Plains, WI - "Famous for friendliness"

Nestled in the tree-covered hills along Black Earth Creek, Cross Plains doesn’t actually offer much in the way of plains. Named by an early settler for his Tennessee hometown, the town of 4,000 traces its origins to the 1840s and now-gone Haney’s Tavern. The arrival of the railroad spurred later growth. Nowadays, a combination of country living and proximity to Madison businesses and work places have made Cross Plains increasingly popular with many area commuters.

Nearby subdivisions include a tree-shrouded hilltop concealing striking architect-built homes and one of the area’s first energy efficient housing developments. Traditional homes, old and new alike, can be found throughout the area, offering a surprising range of living choices in neighborhoods such as Cedar Hill, Enchanted Valley View, Glacial Valley, Scenic Edge, St. Francis, and Woodside Hills. Local resident Randy B, manager for a specialty food store on Madison’s Monroe Street, relocated his family from the endless suburbs of California’s San Fernando Valley to a home in a newer Cross Plains subdivision. He says choosing Cross Plains was simple. “I wanted my kids to know what it’s like to live in the country. The commute is a lot easier than anything you’d find in LA. I could never do something like this in California. It’s a lot quieter out here, too.” Read more...

Cross Plains recreation & activities

Historic downtown Cross Plains features what may be the only marked “gopher crossing” in the state, a crosswalk leading to a classic Wisconsin tavern, one with its own bowling lanes. The home offices of the Ice Age Scenic Trail Foundation share the same building as one of the area’s leading fly-fishing shops, perfectly located so anglers can gear up for blue ribbon trout stream Black Earth Creek. The area is also noted for turkey and white-tail deer hunting. Cross Plains boasts seven local parks totaling approximately 25 acres.

Cross Plains schools

The town is the nominal half of the highly regarded Middleton-Cross Plains Area School District where you’ll find two elementary schools and a middle school. Elementary and middle-schoolers attend class in town, while high school students travel to Middleton.
