Walworth, WI Real Estate

Walworth, Wisconsin Real Estate

Located in a county by the same name, Walworth is directly across Geneva Lake from Lake Geneva. It has a population of just under 2,000 residents.

Walworth’s landscapes are composed of farmland, rolling hills and swamps. The town’s muck land, derived from its swamps, provided the area’s early residents with rich soil in which to grow their crops. Vegetable and fruit farming was, at one time, Walworth’s primary economic benefactor. Most of the Town’s inhabitants earned their livelihood from farming – they either owned a farm, worked for a farmer, or worked in a farm-related business. And although Walworth still maintains ties with its agricultural roots, it also has a strong business community.

Since 1973, Walworth has been home to Kikkoman Foods, international producer of naturally brewed soy sauce and other sauces.

The Town of Walworth is a nice community in which to raise a family. It has an excellent education system. Its Big Foot High School recently completed a $15 million renovation/expansion project. The project included new art, music and science departments, as well as a new foyer and gymnasium. And Walworth Elementary School offers a great curriculum for youth.

Walworth has much to do in the area of recreation. The Big Foot Recreational District, located nearby, offers a range of athletic opportunities, as well as a fitness center. Also available in the area is lacrosse and archery through the Walworth Parks and Recreation Department.

When not engaged in physical activity, Walworth residents attend one of the town’s many spectacular events. The Walworth Lions Club Festival in the Park features a 5K race/walk, cruise night, rock climbing, bungee trampoline, bounce house, bungee run, human foosball, giant slide, bingo and fireworks.

Or, locals attend the Star Gazing Party, an event in which they join experienced guides from the Rochester Astronomy Club in viewing planets and star clusters through high-powered telescopes.

A favorite among visitors and locals alike is the Scrapbook Manor, which is a 100-year-old manor that features retreats offering a charming combination of scrapbooking and the bed and breakfast experience.

History
The area known today as Walworth was first settled in 1799 by four brothers from Connecticut. Its land was attractive because it offered rich soil for farming. Walworth became a town in 1829.
