Welcome to the official City of Markesan’s Home Page. Please browse through the informational pages for a guided tour of our community, blending Markesan’s rich history with our modern identity.

Markesan is special and unique because of the high standards we hold. This is shown in our low crime rate, beautiful parks and superior quality school and library systems. But most of all it’s the strength of our community spirit and volunteerism. "A Grand Community" is not just the city motto, it is a way of life. It’s this high standard we uphold as citizens, that places the City of Markesan among the best communities in the nation to work, live and raise a family.

Our historic community celebrates over 150 years of community and purpose. Boasting a wide variety of homes and a diversified business community ranging from seasonal and specialized industries to a charming downtown with owner-operated retail stores and professional services that assist our community and the surrounding areas.

Markesan evolved from a rich agricultural past and has been cultivated with a strong vision for the future. I urge you to learn more about our Grand Community by contacting us by e-mail or calling us at 920-398-3031.
