Real Estate and Community Information
In the heart of Wisconsin lies the beautiful town of La Valle. The town named for the French phrase meaning, "the valley" is nestled on the banks of the Baraboo River and set amid endless fields of beauty and scattered glacial bluffs. The charming all-American town is part of the larger idyllic Sauk County and intrinsically tied to the surrounding lake communities such as Lake Redstone and Dutch Hollow Lake.
The first known resident of the town was Samuel Karstetter in 1847 who settled in the area which was then known as Marston. It did not take long for progress to come to the area formerly known as Marsten. The abundant natural resources brought more settlers to the region. In 1851 the first schoolhouse was built and in 1861 the town was renamed La Valle.
