Oconomowoc

Oconomowoc is a close-knit community with a population of 13,700 centrally located between Milwaukee and Madison in what is known as the “Lake Country Area”.  The name “Oconomowoc” is Native American which means “where the waters meet.”  Oconomowoc features several recreational lakes that include Oconomowoc Lake, Upper Oconomowoc Lake, Okauchee Lake, Lac La Belle, Fowler Lake, Silver Lake, Upper Nashotah Lake, Lower Nashotah Lake, Upper Nemahbin Lake, Lower Nemahbin Lake, Ashippun Lake, and Lower, Middle, & Upper Genesee Lakes.  

Oconomowoc was incorporated as a city in 1865.  Following the arrival of the railroad, Oconomowoc became a favorite summer retreat of tourists and wealthy resorters from Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Louis and other Midwestern cities. Some of the nation's wealthiest families built stately summer homes on the lakes, and by the 1880s Oconomowoc featured six luxury resorts. From the 1870's until the Great Depression, Oconomowoc was known as the “Newport of the West, “ and visits by Presidents Cleveland, Harrison, Grant, Taft, Collidge, McKinley and Theodore Roosevelt earned Main Street the nickname “Avenue of the Presidents. “  The city gained notoriety again in 1939 with the movie premier of “The Wizard of Oz.”

The historic residents founded prominent businesses, such as the Carnation Company, now Outlook Foods, the Oconomowoc Canning Company and of course Pabst Farms which was the former rural retreat of the legendary brewer and internationally known for its purebred livestock.    Now Pabst Farms is a premier master planned community set on 1,500 acres located at the intersection of I-94 and Highway 67 that features luxury homes, condominiums, shops, offices, entertainment venues, parks, civic facilities, and a technology/research park.

Service businesses provide just under a third of the jobs within a five-mile radius of downtown Oconomowoc. Health care providers based in Oconomowoc are among the major service businesses. Oconomowoc is home to state-of-the-art hospitals like the new Aurora Summit Hospital as well as Pro Health Care’s Oconomowoc Memorial. Manufacturers are the Oconomowoc area's second largest employer. Many businesses have located in one of the four industrial/business parks in the Oconomowoc area. Encompassing a total of 293 acres, the parks feature complete infrastructure and ready access to transportation. Oconomowoc’s geographic location allows for easy transportation access for local businesses and the national and regional distribution centers like Roundy’s Foods.
