WELCOME TO RIVER HILLS, WISCONSIN
Hi, my name is Steve Anderson. I’m president of this wonderful, unique, tiny Village just north of Milwaukee. I’m delighted you landed on our website. Whether you are a current resident or a prospective home buyer considering a change in your living style, I hope you will find answers to your questions here. If not, call me or Tammy LaBorde, our Village Manager at 414-352-8213.
We are proud of our small and very special community. The Village is one of the smallest communities in Wisconsin with approximately 1600 residents and covering an area of 5.5 square miles. Our population density could well be one of the lowest among urban municipalities.
In recent years I’ve noticed something very unexpected. Families moving to River Hills are coming from Massachusetts, California, Texas, Illinois, and, of course, southeastern Wisconsin. Not only have they discovered the exceptional values of homes here, they realized that River Hills offers comforts and a lifestyle that are remarkably rare. Instead of congested streets and elevators we enjoy song birds and tranquility; homes are separated by beautiful lawns and hardwood trees, not boring walls. Mother nature is doing well.
In our Village there is a comfortable feeling of security and friendliness as we enjoy long walks on quiet streets with little traffic. When you visit River Hills, you will quickly recognize it is a peaceful Village that blends a warm feeling of community with privacy.
We are fortunate to have some of the finest schools in Wisconsin including Nicolet High School and University School of Milwaukee. Homes in the Village are available in a wide range of prices and styles.
If you work from home, you can have spacious rooms for your office and beautiful gardens at your windows for relaxation all surrounded by a large lot. Many homes are located on the scenic Milwaukee River which offers sport fishing, canoeing, and kayaking.
Our Police and Public Works Departments are dedicated to keeping the Village safe, comfortable and beautiful throughout the year. Within the Village there is the internationally recognized Lynden Sculpture Garden, a private tennis club and golf club, and three houses of worship.
Our Village is surrounded by excellent shopping and fine restaurants although there are no commercial properties within the Village. We are only nine miles, or fifteen minutes from the center of Milwaukee, a vibrant city with outstanding cultural venues, professional sports, and numerous global corporate headquarters. The airport is only twenty minutes away.
I hope you find the information you are seeking on our website and get to know our Village better. Please call me or Tammy LaBorde, if you have questions at 414 352-8213.
