Waunakee, WI - "The only Waunakee in the world!"

Signs welcoming you to this thriving community of about 12,000 proudly announce you’ve reached “the Only Waunakee in the World!” As you enter from nearby Middleton via Highway Q, that sense of local uniqueness is confirmed by the Heidi-themed metalworks enhancing the Endres Manufacturing site. There’s more than public tongue-in-cheek humor and industrial folk art at work, though, to make Waunakee distinctive.
