Velkommen to Stoughton! This is quite possibly the first thing you will see or hear as you enter the city limits of this friendly and charming community located in south central Dane County. Norwegian heritage permeates the historic downtown and the many historic neighborhoods that boast a wide variety of building styles including Victorian, Arts and Crafts and Italianate. Stoughton has an annual Syttende Mai Celebration with traditional garb, dance and a few Viking Games thrown in for good measure. Bordered by Lake Kegonsa with the Yahara River running through it, Stoughton is a water lover's playground for all four seasons.
