Closely knit community with a strong focus on family. Short drive to other small towns, a large metro area, recreational points and two hours away from Chicago, Milwaukee, and the Iowa border!

The best years of my life where in German Valley. People there are small town friendly and keep a watchful eye on everything. Trust me they know more about you than you do. If you didn't grow up there you will always be an outsider, Always. German Valley will always be in my heart no matter where I go in life.
The environment is friendly, comfortable, and safe.
