Muskego Real Estate

Stating out as the home of the Potawatomi, Muskego was called “Mus-kee-Guaac”, meaning sunfish.  In 1833, the tribe ceded their lands to the U.S. government.  Muskego’s countryside and lakes were so popular with the Milwaukee residents that a trolley was built to connect the two in 1904.  In 1925 the Muskego Beach Amusement Park was opened, offering a resort and vacation spot for those looking for an escape from the larger cities.

Located in Waukesha County, it is the 5th largest community and had a population of 24,135 in 2010.  Once an agricultural area, Muskego became a city in 1964, incorporating Tess Corners and Durham Hill as it grew.

Muskego contains three lakes, all formed primarily by glaciers. Big Muskego is the largest in acreage but most of the lake is less than four feet deep.  The banks are dominated by cattail wetlands and marsh.  Little Muskego, though smaller in size is deeper and allows for much more recreational activities, like boating, skiing, sailing and fishing.  Most of the shoreline is developed with residential housing.  Lake Denoon is located in the southwestern portion of the city and is partially located in neighboring Norway.

Muskego is situated on I-43 and is only a short drive away from everything.  It’s every growing businesses, shops, dining offer convenience to it’s residents, yet the City still has a small town charm and closeness in its communities.
