Evansville is a very strong and safe small town community. It offers a very wonderful place to raise a family and a convenient location for professionals being only 25 minutes to Madison or 20 minutes towards Janesville it’s a great in between city to live . Moved here 24 years ago, our children have been able to participate in many school activities and local clubs such as theatre, music, sports, dance, and a strong scouting program here. With Lake Leota as a base setting, the area boasts of beautiful lakes, rivers, and parks for outdoor activities. We have a very strong community base of adults who volunteer for community events. The Evansville 4th of July, is one of the most attended and well organized events in the area. This event includes a large parade , best music, and amazing fireworks in southern Wisconsin. Lined with a sweet cobblestone street downtown, and old Victorian houses, our visiting friends once called Evansville, the little Norman Rockwell town.

I moved to Evansville when my children were young. We raised them here feeling safe. They participated in every sport available. Worked locally bussing tables, lifeguarding and cashiering at the pig.
We own a local business in town and my husband grew up here. I have seen a lot of positive changes and growth here over the past 30+ years.
I hope we can continue our small town feel while industrial growth takes place to unburden the taxpayer. That will hopefully keep our little downtown small business owners doors open.
The historic homes and beautiful downtown buildings are something Evansville should be proud of. We are deep in history and rich in compassion for our town and one another. When someone asks me where I'm from, I
proudly say Evansville is my hometown.
I have lived in Evansville almost my entire life. This town is amazing. Over the year I have watched people lose parents (myself included) lose children, watched a restaurant burn down, etc. Every time someone is in need this town, despites peoples differences, joins together to help support them. They do everything they can to make sure they have the love and support they need.

The town does really well actually. I am not sure if I would change anything they aren't already working on. Something's are old and falling apart, but they are slowly working to fix them with what they have in the budget. Over the years they will continue to do so. They have worked to rebuild what is the most important first and then go from there.
