About the Community


With affordable housing, top-notch schools, and low crime rates, Sussex is one of the best places to raise a family, according to Bloomberg Newsweek. This Waukesha County village is home to over 10,700 residents. Pewaukee borders Sussex to the south, while Menomonee Falls and Lannon neighbors the village to the east. With State Highway 164 crossing through Sussex and Interstate 94 just a few miles south, downtown Milwaukee is just a 30-minute drive southeast.

George Elliott, a bricklayer from East Sussex, and Richard Cooling, a blacksmith from Dorset, founded the village in 1843. Businesses began to thrive after the arrival of the Milwaukee, Menomonee Falls, and Western Railroad. Today, businesses still flourish in the village, while many companies are headquartered in Sussex, including Quad Graphics. Manufacturing and healthcare are the most common industries for residents of the village. The average home value is $225,000.


Community festivities are very important and plentiful in Sussex. The village has an annual rummage sale, a weekly farmers market, a Zumbathon, a S.O.S. Community Fun Day, and much more. Youth sports, such as tee-ball, soccer, and baseball, as well as senior programs, are also quite popular in the village. More than 10 parks are found in Sussex, complete with playgrounds, sports fields, and open green space.
