Spring Green, WI Real Estate, Spring Green Area and Community Information
Spring Green, Wisconsin, is a village of about 1,700 individuals in southwestern Wisconsin. This Sauk County community is surrounded by wooded, rolling terrain to the west of the state capital of Madison.
The area was not settled by those of European descent until the late 1830s, only a few years before Wisconsin statehood was granted in the 1840s. Within two decades, the population of the Sauk County area swelled from a few hundred to thousands. The wooded hills supplied timber to a growing lumber industry, and farming took hold in the valleys. Dairy farms grew in number as the 20th century arrived.
