Welcome to the Village of Stratford!


The Village of Stratford is located in the southwest portion of Marathon County, Wisconsin, at the intersection of State Highways 97 and 153.

Named after the Canadian hometown of the Connor Family, Stratford began as a company town in the late 1800's, settled primarily by lumberjacks and farmers.  Stratford was platted in 1891 and incorporated in 1910. Now Stratford bursts with a diverse population topping 1,600.

Whether a life-long resident or a newcomer looking for a place to call "home", Stratford offers affordable housing, thriving business and industry, excellent public and parochial school choices, various church affiliations, a rich park system, and many recreational opportunities -- all within this welcoming community!
