Walworth, WI 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.
