Community Overview

City of Elkhorn SignWelcome to the City of Elkhorn!

Elkhorn is one of the most livable small towns in America.  The City thrives as a small, traditional, Wisconsin "hometown" with tree-lined streets, beautiful historical homes, and an established downtown.  It is a place in which to grow up, raise a family and retire in the context of a "caring community" exhibiting excellence in governance, education, recreation, health care, and civic activity.

We invite you to browse through the City of Elkhorn official website to get to know our "hometown" and the many services it offers to its residents and visitors.  Here you will be able to obtain information about the City and each of the City's Departments, view Council agendas and minutes, and updates of projects.

Please visit the Elkhorn Area Chamber of Commerce & Tourism Center's website to learn more about why Elkhorn is a great place to live, work and play!
