About Wisconsin


Wisconsin is a state in the Midwest in the United States of America. The name Wisconsin means "meeting of the waters" and is of Native American origin. Wisconsin borders Illinois, and Iowa to the south, Minnesota to the west, and Michigan to the north. To the east lies the long Lake Michigan shoreline and in the northwest a smaller Lake Superior shoreline.

Being home to two Great Lakes, thousands of inland lakes and waterways, the state could easily be called the nation's "waterworld" instead. The southern portion of the state is mainly agricultural and urban while the northern half is mostly rural and forested and is more similar in appearance to Michigan's Upper Peninsula. The central region acts as a transition zone with both forests, farm land and small cities. The state's largest city and urban area is Milwaukee located in southeastern Wisconsin. In south-central Wisconsin lies the state capital Madison.

Wisconsin is known nationwide for its dairy heritage, or as "America's Dairyland". Historically an important mining state, settlers migrated to Wisconsin in the 1830s attracted by rich farmland. Dairy farming was popularized by settlers from New York and New England in 1830-60. Dominant industries today include pulp, paper and paper products (40 percent of the state being forested), transportation and equipment manufacturing, dairy farming and food processing.

64+ Acres Vacant Land in New Berlin, Wisconsin

New Berlin, Waukesha County, Wisconsin

64+ Acres Land/Equestrian Estate 17600 National Ave available now land 64+ acres Land / Equestrian Estate, with private pond possible in the city of New Berlin, New New Berlin, Wisconsin just on the edge of the Milwaukee metropolitan sewer service area. Part in the future service area. The owners have decided to sell and it seemed that a good use would relate to horses. I'm not sure how many but I would guess quite a few. If it was a single family residence likely no city approvals, but the buyer would have to check on a number of things including but not limited to the number of horses, availability of an on site septic system, area for driveway access (there's a lot of commercial frontage on a major roadway, National Avenue). If a commercial horse facility, city approvals would be necessary but a good chance of approval as the city is encouraging "rural" uses in the area. If any interest by horse enthusiasts, please call me, Mike Schober cell 262-370-1084 for info . Price $22,500 per acre. Serious inquiries only
