GrŁezi from The Town of New Glarus. Swiss immigrants from Glarus, Switzerland, settled New Glarus in 1845. Nestled within the rolling hills of Green County in Southern Wisconsin, New Glarus resembles the alpine farmlands of its namesake and is known today as Americaís "Little Switzerland." New Glarusí Swiss heritage is apparent in its architecture, geranium-filled flower boxes, ethnic foods and festivals.
Perhaps the quiet rural setting or gorgeous backyard vistas are responsible for The Town's growth. Perhaps itís the easy 30-minute commute to either Monroe or Madison that has attracted our new residents. We like to think that itís our Swiss Hospitality and charm that caused our population to nearly double since 1990. New Glarus is currently home to 1,314 residents.
Our Office is located in the Swiss Miss Center, 1101 Highway 69, in New Glarus, Wisconsin. The entrance is beneath the skywalk that connects the Bank of New Glarus to the New Glarus pharmacy. Office hours are 8 AM - 5 PM Monday through Friday. Our phone number is (608) 527-2390 and our fax number is (608) 527-3390.
