There’s always something happening at our award-winning community center, Town Square. Located in the center of downtown Green Lake–in the beautiful, historic former Green Lake County Courthouse–Town Square has become an extremely-popular hub of activity where residents and visitors come to work and play together. Take a class, come to an event, hold your own event, or just come on over and meet the people who are creating the future of the Green Lake area.
History OF TOWN SQUARE
Town Square is located in the former 1899 county courthouse, designed by Oshkosh Architect William Waters, who won a contest of Wisconsin Architects to design the Wisconsin building for the Colombian Exposition World’s Fair in Chicago. One hundred and some years later, the historic building was left empty when the county built new facilities outside of Town. A nonprofit group then acquired the building and introduced it to the world in August of 2012 as Town Square, a community project not supported by tax dollars. In 2015, Town Square became part of the organization Green Lake Renewal. Since then, Town Square has become a business incubator, landlord for many local non-profits, offered art and cooking classes, opened a fitness center and commercial kitchen, hosted monthly bingo and in other ways has served as the Green Lake community hub.
