    Cedar Creek meanders through the City of Cedarburg

Welcome to historic Cedarburg – a small city in close proximity to downtown Milwaukee but with a character and a history a world away.

Located just 20 miles north of Milwaukee near Interstate 43 and Highway 60, the city has access to all that Metropolitan Milwaukee offers, but boasts its own award winning school system, seasonal festivals, visual and performing arts and thriving commerce activity. Recreation abounds in dozens of parks, bike trails, lakes and the nearby beautiful Lake Michigan shoreline.

With a population of approximately 11,500 residents, Cedarburg is a growing community that has successfully maintained rural characteristics but is close to national retailers, a regional hospital and industrial and office parks.

From its early beginnings in the mid 1800’s as a destination known for its mineral spring waters and bucolic setting along the banks of Cedar Creek, much of the charm of Cedarburg has not changed. German Immigrants used the native limestone to build homes, churches and stores, many of which are standing today. The stone is incorporated into municipal buildings, bed and breakfasts, museums and art galleries – which earned our main street a designation on the National Register of Historic Places.

Come see what Cedarburg has to offer – you won’t be disappointed!
