Village of Black Earth

Welcome to the Village of Black Earth web site

Feel free to send us your questions or comments.

An 1877 regional history of Dane county locales, published in Madison, described the Village of Black Earth with an almost contradictory ambivalence. In 1880, Black Earth was a thriving business community. The town had its own harness makers, shoemakers, a general machine shop, three blacksmiths, two planing mills, a wagon maker, various carpenters, four saloons, three grain merchants and three stock buyers. The Black Earth Residents founded the first co-op in Wisconsin and it is still in existence today.

Since then, the village has grown to a community of 1374 residents, including 31 businesses. Black Earth contains a public library, three church congregations, two day cares, a preschool, the largest independently owned shoe store in the midwest, and two elderly facilities. Black Earth has both a local medical and dental clinic. Mazomanie, and Black Earth joined together to build a new middle school (which included the grades of 6-8) and remodel the high school.

The Village of Black Earth offers a friendly, small-town atmosphere with easy access to business and recreational opportunities in Madison. People are attracted to the area's natural beauty and the many benefits it offers. Black Earth has one of the top ten trout streams in the nation. Black Earth is known for its home talent baseball team.

In the past 10 years the downtown area of Black Earth has undergone renovation including a new village hall which includes the village office, library, and the police department, a new bank, dental clinic and insurance office are also located in the down town area. Black Earth is very proud of its past and is looking forward to the future.

Proximity to Madison. This area is the second-largest market in the state. Madison is the state capital and home of the University of Wisconsin, one of the county's most respected universities. There are many financial, health care, and insurance services available in the city.

Transportation routes. Black Earth is located in US Highway 14. About 14 miles west of US Highway 18/151 and the Beltline around Madison.
