Wilson Homes for Sale

Wilson is a very small community in St. Croix County where only around 200 people call home. Founded all the way back in 1870, the village of Wilson, WI (not to be mistaken for the town of Wilson in Sheboygan County), was named for Captain William Wilson—a successful businessman who worked in Western Wisconsin’s thriving lumber industry back in the late 1800s and early 1900s. While of course a lot has changed all throughout the Western Wisconsin region since then, the village of Wilson remains a quiet rural community with plenty of open space and farmland surrounding the few buildings and houses that make up its downtown landscape.

Wilson’s Location

The village of Wilson lies near the southeast corner of St. Croix County, just north of Interstate 94 and just east of Highway 128. U.S. Highway 12 runs right through the middle of Wilson and acts as the only major thoroughfare through the entire town. Nearby communities include the unincorporated community of Hersey to the west, the village of Knapp to the east, and the village of Spring Valley not terribly far to the south. The close proximity to the interstate allows home owners in Wilson to get to and from the Twin Cities in under an hour on most days, and the city of Eau Claire, which also has plenty community amenities for Wilson locals to enjoy, is also under an hour away in the other direction just off I-94 as well.

Wilson Real Estate

With Wilson only having a total area of 1.63 square miles, the real estate market here is mostly limited to single-family homes that hover around the town’s Main Street and some farmhouses and other residences with plenty of private acreage scattered around the town’s outskirts. Newer homes in town are often quite nice and can sometimes even exceed $300,000 or $400,000, but look for most houses to be priced somewhere in the $100,000 to $250,000 price range.
