Incorporated in 1913, the Village of Melrose, Wisconsin is nestled in the Heart of Black River Country.  Located just 40 miles Northeast of La Crosse, Wisconsin, Melrose boasts a population of 503 residents. Despite its small size, the Village surprisingly offers its citizens a wealth of recreational activities, business opportunities, and governmental services.

The Melrose Recreation Department maintains two parks, tennis courts, a swimming pool and multiple baseball diamonds.  The Water and Sewer Departments monitor state of the art wells, water treatment facilities, and a landmark water tower.  Our part-time police officers, volunteer fire department and first-responders are first-class.  Multiple businesses, churches, and a Post Office combine to provide residents with all of the necessities.

Unhampered by gridlock traffic, industrial pollution, or big city noise; what we don’t provide in stature, we make up in friendliness.  Come live, work, or visit us!
