Janesville, WI

Just an hour south of Madison in Rock County, Janesville residents enjoy a rich history. The community has its sights set on the next exciting chapter of civic development.

On the southern border of Wisconsin is Janesville, a scenic community with multiple buildings on the National Register of Historic Places. Its city flag was designed in 2015 following a contest held in local schools, and Janesville’s economy is strong in sectors like agriculture, education, healthcare, manufacturing and retail. Transportation advantages include Interstate 90/39 along with two U.S. highways, and Janesville is nicknamed “Wisconsin’s Park Place” thanks to more than 60 public parks and nature trails.
