Menomonee Falls WI

Menomonee Falls WI

Menomonee Falls is the fourth largest community in Waukesha County and the most populous village in Wisconsin. Its 33-square-mile setting offers everything from sparkling new subdivisions and suburban shopping corridors to a quaint historic village and, of course, its famous waterfalls.

The city’s 32,000+ residents are a relatively young population, with the greatest concentration falling into the 25-44-year-old category. More than 32% of the households contain children under that age of 18.

Major employers in Menomonee Falls include Kohl’s Corporation, Community Memorial Hospital, Harley-Davidson and Wells Fargo.

Homes and Neighborhoods
Menomonee Falls calls itself “Wisconsin’s Largest Village” because of its small-town setting with a modern, convenient lifestyle. Home styles range from classic older homes to modern condos and executive residences with plenty of space for welcoming landscaping and backyard recreation.

Shopping and Dining

Great shopping abounds all over Menomonee Falls, with the unique boutiques of the historic Village Centre being a popular destination. The area of Appleton Avenue and Main Street, known as the “four corners,” features specialty shops, restaurants and service businesses. The newest addition to the retail landscape is Woodman’s Food Market, an employee-owned, 24-hour grocery store that offers deep discounts.

There are conveniently located restaurants to keep every member of the family happy. Harvey Moy’s is considered by many to be the best Chinese food in the state. Trysting Place Pub boasts an all-you-can-eat luncheon buffet, pizza, deli sandwiches and plenty of TV screens for viewing your favorite sporting events. For old-time Wisconsin butter burgers, custard and your favorite sides, Pop’s Custard is the place to go.

Point of Interest and Recreation
There’s always something happening in the Village Centre of Menomonee Falls. In spring, events include an Easter Egg Hunt, the Booster Boogie 5K Walk/Run and a Memorial Day Parade.

Special Christmas events include costumed caroling, tree lighting, a parade, and horse and buggy rides. In February, Chilly Fest features an ice carving contest and chili competition in Mill Pond Park, plus a “Warm up to the Arts” art crawl in the village.

Step back in time and experience life in the mid-19th century at Old Falls Village. The 17-acre site features a schoolhouse, barn, railroad depot, log cabin, dairy and the 1858 Miller-Davidson House, listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Each building features antiques and artifacts from the City’s past. In July, experience an elaborate Civil War Encampment and Reenactment, complete with a visit from Abraham Lincoln.
