Originally settled in 1836, Pewaukee was a sought-after location for visitors coming from Milwaukee, Chicago, and beyond. Lured to Pewaukee by a top fishing lake and known as a great summer location, visitors came to Pewaukee as a destination then, and still do.
In older days people flocked to Pewaukee for swimming, boating, and of course – fishing. Today, people flock to Pewaukee because of it’s close proximity to Milwaukee, I-94, Lake Country, great schools and closely-knit neighborhoods. Pride in community is evident here.
Today the City and the Village of Pewaukee offer a variety of what every homeowner would want – stable & rising home values, low taxes, plus great municipal services. The fishing is still great in Pewaukee’s namesake lake, filled with Bluegill, Northern Pike, Walleye and Perch – all very abundant. The big trophy fish, however, is the Musky, which was named as the state’s official fish. The lake also offers winter ice skating, ice fishing, and snowmobiling.
Real estate remains very strong in Pewaukee’s subdivision & neighborhoods. High demand, rising house values, low days on the market all signify that Pewaukee’s real estate market should remain strong for years to come.
