Village of Rochester

Reflections of the past ...The Village of Rochester, incorporated in 1912, is located in Western Racine County in the State of Wisconsin. Rochester offers a unique quality of life found only in rural areas and yet is within easy commuting distance to Milwaukee,
Racine, Waukesha and Lake Geneva job markets. Nestled between the larger communities of Burlington and Waterford, Rochester has been able to retain unique small town charm that mixes urban, farming, and country life styles.

The Fox River is a  main waterway running through the Village.  The river offers recreational opportunities for fishing, canoeing, and kayaking. Rochester also has five park areas that offer Hiking, Bicycle Trails, Baseball and Soccer fields and plenty of room to enjoy nature. The Honey Creek Wildlife Areas offer 1023 acres of wildlife preservation.  Public Hunting allowed during appropriate seasons.
