Welcome to Fox Point

Stunning lakeside views and historical roots


Nestled along the shore of Lake Michigan, the history of Fox Point intertwines with that of the broader region and its development. From indigenous communities to European settlement and suburban growth, the village has undergone significant changes over the centuries.

In the early 1900s, the village was a popular summer getaway from Milwaukee’s downtown. Many East Side families owned summer cottages along the lakeshore and enjoyed the golf course, which was converted into housing eventually.

In the latter part of the 20th century, Fox Point experienced further expansion and modernization. The population grew, and more families settled in the community, attracted by its proximity to Milwaukee and lakeside life. Common architecture in the village includes sprawling ranch homes with a mid-century vibe.

Today, Fox Point remains a charming village with a rich history and an emphasis on community values. It is known for its picturesque lakefront views, well-maintained neighborhoods, and a strong sense of community.
