Live in the peaceful town of Genesee WI!
Genesee is a historic town in Waukesha County. It is located near the center of Waukesha County and in the beautiful Kettle Moraine area of southeast Wisconsin.
According to the United States Bureau, it has an area of 32.0 square miles, of which, 31.9 square miles is land and 0.1 square mile is water.
The community was founded by German, Welsh, Irish, and English immigrants in the early 1840’s. On March 21, 1843, the Wisconsin State Legislature approved the present town boundaries of Genesee. The entire area was formed 10,000 years ago by the glaciers. At present, it has a hilly terrain, shallow soil landscape, and beds of gravel and limestone underlie the land surface.
Genesee is unique because of the number of individual settlements in the township. There are five separate trading centers created by roads, railroads, and water power. Individual settlements include Genesee Village, Saylesville, Genesee Depot, North Prairie and Wales.
