Welcome to Lake Mills, Wisconsin
Lake Mills is a city in Jefferson County, Wisconsin. The population was 4,843 at the 2000 census. The city is located partially within the Town of Lake Mills. The city, originally called Tyranena from the indigenous name meaning "sparkling waters" is located on Rock Lake and was named for both the lake and its first mill built by founder Joseph Keyes.
Its said that the legendary Chief Black Hawk came through the area shortly before the Black Hawk War of 1832, the last stand of the Indians in the Northwest Territories. Following the war in 1836, the first white settlers in the area set up camp at the waterfall between the lake and creek. They renamed the lake, Rock Lake. In 1838, ten years before Wisconsin became a state, an official settlement was established with both its own sawmill and gristmill built on the shores of the lake and was given the name, Lake Mills.
East of town you'll find Aztalan State Park, one of Wisconsin's most significant archeological sites. Once the northernmost outpost of the Middle Mississippian culture, Aztalan was a fortified village whose culture thrived between 1000 and 1300 A.D. But by the time of Columbus, the site had been deserted, leaving only its pyramid-shaped ceremonial mounds. Today, Aztalan is both peaceful - you can climb to the top of a restored diamond-shaped pyramid (a great spot for kite flying) - and active, when motocross bike events grab the summer spotlight.
Lake Mills has been called a "City of Parks." At one such park north of town, Tyranena Park, you can swim in the spring-fed waters of Rock Lake. The lake hides a local mystery, stories going back to to pioneer days tell of strange stone pyramids beneath its waters. Abundant with a variety of fish, this 1,371 acre lake continues to deserve its reputation as one of the very clearest lakes in Wisconsin.
Ideally situated in the rolling green Wisconsin hills, Lake Mills residents enjoy many outdoor activities, including nearby access to some of the finest public and private golf courses in the Midwest. Golf course lots are plentiful in the region and provide both a great setting and ready access to one of Wisconsin's favorite summer activities. Nearby biking and hiking trails, rock climbing, swimming and - with Madison and Milwaukee just minutes away, both collegiate and professional spectator sports are also at their best for Lake Mills home owners.
Nearby Waterloo, Wisconsin, is the Wisconsin home of Trek USA, manufacturer of the sleek racing bicycles that Lance Armstrong and the Discovery Channel team have ridden to victories in the Tour de France. On the first weekend of October, beer and bicycles blend on the Tyranena Oktoberfest Bike Ride. Where else but Wisconsin could you combine a great bike tour, a great bicycle manufacturer and a great beer?
