Wittenberg, Wisconsin is a unique place, both in location and because of its small town charm and rich history. Located in the heart of Central Wisconsin you are only a short drive to all of the metropolitan areas in Wisconsin.
The Reverend E.J. Homme founded Wittenberg in 1879. He also established a home for the aged and an orphanage. The Homme Home for the Aged and Homme Youth and Family Programs are still growing and thriving today in Wittenberg. Along with these businesses is a growing business park that is located east of Wittenberg.
The above attributes, along with many others, make Wittenberg an ideal place to live or establish a business.
Local residents also are able to enjoy the beauty of Central Wisconsin by taking advantage of the close proximity of hunting, fishing, boating and snowmobiling. There truly is something here for everyone!
