Shorewood’s many unique and desirable attributes make it a true gem of a community. The Village was established in 1900 as the Village of East Milwaukee. The Village was renamed the Village of Shorewood in 1917 and covers a small geographical space, measuring only a mile by a mile-and-a-half. With just over 13,000 residents today, Shorewood is the densest community in the state. This urban village is walkable, bike-friendly and architecturally diverse. When you live here, you’re close to everything — the lake, the city of Milwaukee, a major university, a school district known and recognized for excellence, the businesses that have what you need, bike trails, parks — and friendly, well-educated neighbors who care deeply about their community and are quick to volunteer their time and talents to make Shorewood the best possible place to live, work, and play.
