Stoughton WI real estate

If the Stoughton area’s housing market holds any surprises, it’s the amazing variety of home styles, locations, and prices available. Pick from rustic lakeside cabins, modern new homes, and country estates. Filled with Italianate, Queen Anne and Midwest vernacular homes, Stoughton’s Southwest Side Historic District offers the rare combination of Victorian charm and affordability in a stable neighborhood – when homes there come on the market. Though properties on Madison’s Lake Monona and Lake Mendota earn much attention, nearby Lake Kegonsa just north of Stoughton remains a sort of insider’s choice for many who prefer living lakeside. The Town of Dunn, a municipal district to the northwest, features many modern homes in a rural setting.

Life in Stoughton Wisconsin

Perhaps you’ve driven behind a semi-truck pulling a trailer bearing the Stoughton logo. Yes, the manufacturer is named for its hometown. Transportation has played a significant role since the town’s founding in the mid-19th century as the Yahara River gateway to Madison and points north at a time when boats provided the primary mode of travel. Stoughton's vibrant and historic downtown boasts charming shops, galleries and restaurants, and the beautifully restored opera house is one of the few remaining second story theaters in the Midwest.

The largest of Madison’s outlying cities, Stoughton displays a sense of community and connectedness. The town still bears the influence of Norwegian immigrants who brought their families and traditions more than 100 years ago. Norwegian flags and rosemaling festoon the downtown area every year as Stoughton’s citizens gear up for Syttendemai (meaning the 17th of May), a three-day, city-wide celebration of Denmark’s return of home rule to its northern neighbor. Be sure to try the lefse (Norwegian crepes) and cream puffs, but be on guard for whatever prank local high school seniors have chosen to torment one another for this year’s event.

Stoughton WI Schools

The Stoughton Area School District includes five schools serving about 3,400 students in grades Pre-K through 12. Though some facilities suffer from current economic conditions, the district’s low student-teacher ratio keeps parent satisfaction ratings high. Test scores from 2011 show students of all grades scoring consistently above the state average. 

About half an hour from Madison to the south, like so many neighboring communities Stoughton provides access to both country charm and urban sophistication. Most of all, it offers a sense of community absent from too many suburban areas.
