Oregon Homes for Sale
A small town feeling minutes from Madison
Oregon was first settled in 1841 by Bartlet Runey, and the first house was constructed in 1843. Initially the village was known as “Rome Corners,” and there is a road south of town which still bears that name. When the Chicago and North Western Transportation Company came though the village in the 1864, their maps indicated the name of “Oregon,” and the name was adopted. The village was incorporated in 1881.
Oregon maintains a hometown atmosphere and small town sense of hospitality despite being located only seven miles from Madison and 15 minutes from the Capitol and UW-Madison. In fact, Money Magazine named Oregon one of the 100 best places to live in 2011. The compact, walkable downtown contains several bars, restaurants and shops, and is surrounded by many older homes that give the area a quaint feeling. For more active residents there are two golf courses in town, The Legend at Bergamont and Foxboro Golf Club. For these reasons, and many more, Oregon is a much sought after community in the Madison area.
Entertainment in Oregon
Golf, Bowling and Award Winning Restaurants
Downtown Oregon boasts several great restaurants. Charlie’s on Main was named the number two restaurant in the annual Madison Magazine Best of awards. Charlie’s has an approachable, laid back atmosphere paired with a delicious menu. If you are gluten free, as I am, it is a great place to eat. Nearly everything on the menu is gluten free or can be made gluten free. This includes the fried cheese curds, onion straws, and fish fry. If you go on the weekend, make sure to check out the Speakeasy in the basement as well. It is a unique experience not to be missed.
A couple doors down from Charlie’s you will find Holstein Kitchen which features classic recipes with creative and inspired updates. It is dining experience not to be missed.
