About the Community

Overview

Small town charm and a family-friendly living are staples in the lives of the 10,000 residents of Lisbon. Located in the north-central part of Waukesha County, the community is bordered by Merton to the west and Sussex to the east. Proximity to State Highway 164 makes the 30-minute drive to Milwaukee very easy.

The first settlers in the town of Lisbon arrived in 1836 and 1837. At first, agriculture was the main industry in the area, thanks to the good soil. Wheat and barley were grown for Milwaukee flour mills and breweries. Lisbon’s economy then began to focus on dairy when butter creameries and cheese factories arrived to the town. The town was either named after an early settler, the New York City of New Lisbon, or the name of Portugal’s capital, Lisbon.

Recreation

The town has approximately 170 acres of parkland and six distinct parks. These parks have baseball fields, soccer fields, playgrounds, hiking and cross-country skiing trails, plus many sports leagues for both youths and adults. Three golf courses, both public and private, can be found in the area as well.
