Our community is rich in history. Founded as a lumber mill town and railroad hub on the Rock River, over time the community has become synonymous with the Horicon Marsh, outdoor adventures, and wildlife conservation. Horicon has a historic downtown, quaint lodging and shops, walkable traditional neighborhoods, and an outstanding school district. Our community is affordable, and has a variety of large employers with a range of manufacturing and service businesses that are remarkable in such a beautiful natural setting.
Horicon has a strong school district that routinely exceeds the expectations of the State of Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction
, placing us in fine company when compared with similar communities. Our particular strength is a high rating on student growth, and in closing gaps for economically disadvantaged students.
