Cheesers



Walk in to Cheeser's and feel that Midwestern hospitality when you're greeted by Peg & Steve, the dynamic duo (husband & wife) that run this famous Wisconsin cheese shop. Try samples of delicious Wisconsin cheese ranging from a cheese made out of fudge (yes, you read that right) to the ever-popular and longed for brick cheese, featured on SeriousEats.com.

FROM A DREAM TO A REALITY

Veteran's Memorial Park


A memorial dedicated to the men and women who served or are serving in the US Armed Forces, Veteran's Memorial Park was just an idea from two people [insert names] at one point. Contrary to most of the town's expectations, they partnered together and raised a million dollars in one year to make this dream become a reality!

Stoughton's Roots & Wings

The Norweigan History runs deep here in Stoughton. The collective journey of Stoughton's rich, Norweigan history and its promising future is the hinge upon which the people of the city swings. We look back at our roots and history, and we look forward to our growth and future. We celebrate our roots with our annual Syttende Mai Festival, and we tie in elements of the present and beyond with a completely interactive and amazing museum experience of Norweigan history at the Livsreise Museum. Come experience Stoughton for yourself!
