Stoughton

Nestled in a bend of the Yahara River, Stoughton celebrates its roots with four historic districts including a historic Main Street. A highlight of this stroll back in time is a tour of the Stoughton Opera House, the city’s 100-year-old restored Victorian theatre. The downtown reflects the community’s Norwegian heritage with gift and specialty shops, antiques, and art galleries. This rich heritage comes to life each May with the community’s annual Norwegian Syttende Mai celebration. Just north of the city, Lake Kegonsa offers 3,800 acres of boating, swimming and fishing fun. Lake Kegonsa State Park is a popular choice; its 80 campsites, 6 miles of trails, boat launch and beach are a great way to beat the summer heat. In the winter the trails are open for cross-country skiing as well.
