Pardeeville, a village of approximately 2000 people, was founded by John Pardee in the mid-1800s and is located 35 miles north of Madison, on Highway 22. Many of Pardeeville’s assets include Chandler Park, which is surrounded by beautiful Park Lake, the Angie Williams Cox Library, and the Columbia County Historical Museum. Pardeeville Antique Mall is also a point of interest. Enjoy our Watermelon Festival at Chandler Park the first Saturday after Labor Day. Pardeeville is surrounded by many campgrounds, farm markets and a large Amish Settlement to the north. For the sports enthusiast, there is water skiing, fishing and swimming on Park Lake; snowmobiling, cross country skiing and curling in the winter. Pardeeville has a good school system, and eight churches in the village and surrounding area. For all four seasons, Pardeeville is a great place to live or visit.
