The Epitomy of Country Life
Once considered the "Wild West" because of its remote location, the Town of Spring Prairie today is a largely agricultural community of rolling hills, verdant woods and lush farm fields of corn, soybeans, and wheat, intermingled with pastures featuring, cattle, horses and sheep.
Spring Prairie is on the eastern edge of Walworth County, just 13 miles from the Illinois border. Both Sugar Creek and Honey Creek meander through the Town providing ample wildlife habitat. Once a summer retreat for Chicago residents, Honey Lake now boasts more year-round homes than cottages. The Honey Lake community straddles the Walworth-Racine County line lying in both the Town of Spring Prairie and the Village of Rochester.
