Recently, CNN ran a feature about voter attitudes in the City of Cedarburg.

While they offered some scenic shots of the landscape and architecture, and provided some demographic and voting statistics, it left others wanting to know more about this quaint community in Southeast Wisconsin.

1. Cedarburg, located in Ozaukee County, Wisconsin, is a picturesque historic City with a population of 12,646 renowned for its well-preserved 19th-century architecture and vibrant arts community. Its origins can be traced back to 1842 when Ludwig Groth bought land that would become the village of Cedarburg. In a few years a sawmill, a grist mill and a woolen mill would be built along Cedar Creek, and by 1885 Cedarburg would be incorporated as a city.

2 Established by many German immigrant families, and bolstered by the arrival of the Milwaukee and Northern Railway in 1870, Cedarburg and the surrounding area continued to grow.

3. Now a popular tourist destination, Cedarburg is home to the Cedar Creek Settlement, a beautifully restored 1864 woolen mill complex that now houses shops, galleries, restaurants, and a winery.

4. The Washington Avenue Historic District in Cedarburg boasts more than 80 buildings dating back to the 19th century, featuring charming shops, eateries, and art galleries within exquisitely preserved structures. 

 5. Cedarburg is famous for its annual Strawberry Festival, a delightful event celebrating all things strawberry, including delicious treats, live music, arts and crafts vendors, and family-friendly activities that attract visitors from far and wide.
