New Berlin Real Estate
With a population of 39,584, the City of New Berlin is the 2nd largest community in Waukesha County. The northeastern part of the city was originally part of the Town of Muskego in 1838 but separated the following year, and was named the Town of Mentor. A year after that Mentor became New Berlin, named after the city in New York by Sidney Evans.
For 100 years the area remained a rural and agricultural location until widespread migration from Milwaukee took hold with the population increasing from 1,293 to 5,334. By the 1960’s that number tripled to 15778 and the Town of Berlin graduated to a city.
Thanks to the construction of the New Berlin Industrial Park in the mid 60’s, the city experienced large scale growth yet again, also leading to the expansion of the I-43 Moorland Road exit to accommodate commuters. The recent addition of roundabouts to that location also added a bit of controversy due to increased accidents and traffic backups.
Forming a 6 mile by 6 mile square in the southeast corner of Waukesha County, New Berlin boast both economic growth with 10 companies employing a combined 404,000 people, and recreational enjoyment with over 26 parks. New Berlin was also ranked #11 in the Top 100 Places to Live in America by Money Magazine in 2017!
