Welcome to the City of Jefferson, Wisconsin

Jefferson, Wisconsin is a quaint Wisconsin community. Main Street shows off its vintage buildings and steepled churches built by German craftsmen. Two picturesque rivers flow through the middle of town. Our rivers will be a focal point for visitors and residents, so they can float up and catch a concert, meal and even camp along the riverbank. We know what we have is special, because people from big cities keep moving here. It’s also because we’re close by, comfortable, easygoing, hardworking, genuine and fun loving. If the great outdoors are important in your life, then Jefferson should be, too. Because, “We’re Going Outside”.
