In its early years, Kewaskum depended primarily on agriculture for its economic foundation. In the early 19th century, the Chicago Northwestern Railway brought forth new lines of trade and commercial enterprise. And since the 1920s, the economy has shifted to a more industrial setting.

Kewaskum is a great place to live. Its historic downtown area is a popular destination with the locals and displays a variety of architectural styles. The Kewaskum school system is excellent, with its many public and private schools offering a truly dynamic education.

The Town isn’t called the “Gateway to the Kettle Moraine State Forest” for nothing. The one-of-a-kind forest is within close proximity and provides almost 30,000 acres of rolling hills, lakes, forests and grasslands. The forest is especially known for its unique glacial features and is an excellent venue for outdoor activities.

Also located nearby is the Ice Age Center, where one can witness the geological phenomena that shaped the area now known as Kewaskum.
