Welcome to Town of New Hope, Wisconsin
New Hope is a town in Portage County, Wisconsin, United States. It was constituted in 1865. The Town’s first inhabitants were almost all Norwegians.
The Town in its present limits has always remained rural. A few stores were established, post offices were open, a creamery functioned for some years and the places where these establishments were received names such as Benson Corners, Garfield, Peru, but none of them developed into a village.
New Hope lies completely on the terminal moraine of the last Wisconsin glaciation. It is therefore hilly with some kettles and a number of small lakes formed in the kettles. One of the most beautiful lakes and also most popular lake is Sunset Lake.
The population of New Hope has grown 58% between 1960 and 2000, and a projected population of the Town will be 860 by 2025.
