Welcome

The Town of Black Earth is located approximately 20 miles west of Madison. The first Europeans to permanently settle here arrived in 1843. Five years later, the Wisconsin State Legislature created the Town of Farmersville, which was later renamed to Black Earth. Black Earth (population 449) is a rural farming community blessed with natural resources, including fertile soils and the popular Black Earth Creek.
