About the Community
The Baraboo area combines a rich history, small-town charm, and access to beautiful scenery and big-city amenities. It was settled in 1838, ten years before Wisconsin became a state, and is renowned for the Circus World Museum, the Mid-Continent Railway Museum, Devil's Lake State Park, the Al Ringling Theatre, the International Crane Foundation, and the University of Wisconsin-Baraboo/Sauk County. In recognition of all that Baraboo has to offer, Smithsonian Magazine selected Baraboo as one of "The 20 Best Small Towns to Visit in 2013." See links below.
