Former Resident: Growing up in a small town such as Shawano, you always long for a life in the big city. However, after a while you come to realize that the quiet town you used to live in was quiet, safe, and easily accessible because of its size. While cities may have more forms of entertainment and food options, Shawano has a warm, inviting atmosphere, all based on the strong bond within the local community. It's definitely the place to move to if you're looking for a place to settle comfortably.

Niche User: The streets of Wittenberg are pretty empty most of the time, and you are more likely to see people at the grocery store, church, or at a bar. I have not met anyone overly friendly, and people tend to keep to themselves, but are somewhat nosy. I like it here because I can get my own personal space, and I haven't met anyone excessively rude. I feel safe when I walk down the side walks, but again, it is very empty most of the time. Less people walk around, as they do drive. Traffic is minimal, and the highway runs through the center of town.
It's a small town, but is starting to grow bigger. North Central Technical college has a building, and two new fast food chains have opened up, McDonalds, which recently rebuilt and Subway.It has town small medical clinics just outside ot town. Most of the businesses are local, and just out side of town is the only Nueske's store in the world, so far. The building is like a small museum in itself with a board walk, and antiques hanging on the walls inside.
The school is a combination of several other small towns like Birnamwood, Elderon, Eland, Gemania, and Galloway. The high school band is well know among the smaller towns around it and marches for Wittenberg Days, which is a three day event, with live music, and a parade. Which has been featured on the Discover Wisconsin website, to promote tourism in Wisconsin. They also march for Memorial Day in Birnamwood, Galloway Days, and in Disney Land every three years. For a small school the education is good, and has a variety of college credit classes, that can be useful in the future, saving money in college.
The town also has murals painted on many of the buildings, including the elementary and high school, several bars, the layer's office, the fire house, post office, hard ware store, and the grocery store. The murals have been painted by the Wow Space, Walls Of Wittenberg,a local art gallery, and hold shows regularly.
