Oregon, with a population of 7,000, is truly an outstanding place to live, raise a family and practice medicine. Oregon is surrounded by prime agricultural land in the southwestern part of Wisconsin, and offers old world charm in a bustling downtown. Whether looking for convenience items, restaurants, a neighborhood coffee shop, gifts or grocery shopping, Oregon's downtown offers it all. Boasting an outstanding public school system, Oregon schools have received national recognition as a leader in the field of education. Recreation and entertainment opportunities are plentiful, with bike trails, parks, tennis courts, adult and youth sports programs, a community pool, theater group and band. There are two community golf courses in town, including the Andy North designed Bergamont for the golfer who loves a challenge.
Oregon offers peaceful, small-town living, yet is located a short ten miles from Madison, 1 ½ hours from Milwaukee, and 2½ hours from Chicago. Proximity to these larger cities offers easy access to all the amenities these great cities have to offer.
