• Serving Sussex, Lannon and Lisbon in Waukesha County

The Village of Sussex was incorporated in 1924 from the communities of Sussex and Templeton. The Village is generally small town in nature, but is experiencing rapid growth through the addition of numerous subdivisions and a unique 221-acre industrial park.

The demographics have changed dramatically over the last 20 years and we now live in a much more vibrant & diverse community. Sussex is a bit of a hidden gem just off the main highway, in between the two largest cities in our state, Madison & Milwaukee. The proximity to large cities, with small town charm, is one of the reasons we have become a destination for families and great businesses. We hope you share in these reasons why Sussex is a great place to live, work, and play.

The Village of Sussex is dedicated to maintaining a small town atmosphere and continuing its commitment to improving the safety, welfare and quality of life for our citizens. This is accomplished by providing responsive public services at a low cost, ensuring adequate supply of quality housing, and attracting quality jobs for our residents.

The Village is also committed to providing development and other economic opportunities for both existing commercial and industrial business owners and future entrepreneurs.



The Town of Lisbon is a Township of approximately 30 square miles surrounding the Village of Sussex. The Town is generally rural in nature with a 1999 population of over 9,000. The Village of Lannon, incorporated in 1930, was named for William N. Lannon. He owned the 200 acre Lannon Springs Farm and started the Lannon Springs post office, later shortened to Lannon. The current population of Lannon is just over 1000. As the Town of Lisbon & Village of Lannon do not have their own stand-alone Chamber of Commerce, businesses in these communities are welcome and encouraged to become part of the Sussex Area Chamber of Commerce.



It is the mission of the Hamilton School District, a child-centered, progressive, pro-active organization, to ensure maximum achievement for each student through a respectful and active learning environment; a rigorous, relevant curriculum; and a highly qualified, caring staff in concert with our diverse community. The Hamilton School District has used Strategic Planning since 1991 to meet the community’s expectations for excellent educational programming. Strategic planning concentrates the district’s efforts and resources on specific goals and has been a framework for change. Many exciting accomplishments and successes have been possible because of the efforts put into this process. The Hamilton School District will maximize the potential of all students based on their needs, abilities and interests through differentiated instruction. Components include comprehensive learner profiles, customized learning paths, rigorous content with high standards and proficiency-based progress. Wisconsin School Report Card data were released recently, and the Hamilton School District’s performance once again was among the highest in the state. Hamilton was the highest rated school district in Waukesha County and sixth highest among Wisconsin’s 367 K-12 school districts.
