On behalf of the Village of Winneconne Board of Trustees, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our Village website. Whether a newcomer, or life-long resident of the village such as myself, I think you will find the Village of Winneconne a hard place to leave. Ours is truly a wonderful community in which to live and work, and most importantly, a great place to raise a family. Our Village offers natural beauty, neighborly kindness with a peaceful quality of life.
We are proud of our excellent schools and full-service local government, our expanding industrial community, our friendly Village businesses, and our exceptional parks system. We are proudly, the only Village in Winnebago County. We are only a few miles from State Highways 45 and 41.
The Wolf River bisects our Village and the north and south boundaries of the Village are Lakes Winneconne and Butte des Morts, home of the finest Walleye and White Bass fishing in Wisconsin. With over 100 acres of parks and open space, the Village of Winneconne is perfect for outdoor enthusiasts. The Village is also home to some of Winnebago County's more prominent Corporate Citizens. The Village downtown is well-known for its shopping and vibrant restaurant scene.
Whether you are looking for something to do or considering relocating, we hope you enjoy our website and return often.
John Rogers, Village President
