More About the Oconomowoc Real Estate Market
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 lakes, and by the 1880s Oconomowoc featured six luxury resorts and magnificent beach real estate. 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.
