Welcome to Juneau County Government
Juneau County, Wisconsin was established in 1857 when the State of Wisconsin passed legislation separating lands west of the Wisconsin River from what was then Adams County. After a contest with neighboring New Lisbon, the county seat was established in Maugh's Town, which is known today as Mauston. The county was named after Solomon Juneau, a Milwaukee legislator who influenced the legislation establishing Juneau County. The county board of early Juneau County convened only once a year to conduct the business of the slow moving, remote county.
Today, Juneau County retains the charm of the early days, while it moves forward into the future of electronic government. The Juneau County Board and its employees strive to deliver services to its citizens through the use of modern technology, while still promoting the friendly, rural atmosphere that has made Juneau County a great place to work and play!
