Spring Green was founded in 1857 by Welsh, English, Norwegian and German immigrants whose industries were dairy and produce farms, lumbering and cheese production. Today, agriculture remains integral to the area economy and its residents.
One of the more fascinating aspects of the Spring Green area is that the land was not subjected to the last great Ice Age, as well as the one before that. The result is a landscape that was created at least a half million years earlier than anything else around it.
In addition to the beauty of the surrounding land, a wonderful arts community has sprung up in the Spring Green area becoming a home to artists, musicians and craftspeople who live and work in the area. Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin, American Players Theatre and The House on the Rock are only a few of the many area attractions.
