Welcome to the communities of Owen and Withee,

Clark County, Wisconsin

Tucked into northern Clark County, Owen and Withee welcome you to its quiet and friendly communities.  Owen and Withee are the little twin cities of Wisconsin.  Although two separate municipalities, the City of Owen and Village of Withee are located only one mile apart, but operate and cooperate as one community. Though small in size, the Owen-Withee area is host to over 125 individual businesses that provide many unique and exciting products and services for you to enjoy.  Many of these businesses are located in the surrounding countryside and provide you an opportunity to enjoy the scenic farms, woods, and rivers that we are graced with.  While visiting, take a drive down the picturesque and historical Yellowstone Trail.
A proud tradition is apparent in both of these beautiful communities.  Graceful trees hover over the well maintained streets criss-crossing through Owen-Withee.  These streets will lead you to beautiful parks, walking trails, highly academic schools, shopping and dining.  Owen-Withee is a wonderful place to live and work.  You will find that it is growing steadily with new housing, quality education, and new businesses, yet still retains the warmth and friendliness of a small town.
The City of Owen was founded by the lumber baron, John S. Owen, in 1883, and was incorporated in 1904. One of the most historical buildings remaining in our community is the Old Woodland Hotel on Main Street built by the Owen Lumber Company in the early 1900s. The historical Carriage House, along with the gymnasium, are being refurbished.

In Owen, one might enjoy a nature walk in the majestic forests along the Popple River, a picnic at the Owen Park watching the colorful ducks or watching the sunset from the High Bridge. Owen offers a paved bike trail that leads to the village of Withee for the dedicated roller-bladers, bike riders, and walkers.  Winter offers fantastic ski and snowmobile trails and sledding down Tennis Shoe Hill. Hunters and fisherman will benefit from the woodlands and multitude of lakes and streams in the area. For the avid golfer, Owen boasts a beautiful nine-hole golf course to challenge your talents.  Owen may be a small town in size, but if offers large opportunities. This community also has a friendly atmosphere, where there are no strangers, only smiles and genuine concern for each other. Owen welcomes visitors and new residents, come see what's going on in Owen!


The Village of Withee was founded in 1870, and named after a school teacher from Maine, W.H. Withee, and was incorporated as a village in 1901. The Soo Railroad brought in booming business to the area, developing into the principal shipping point for D.J. Spaulding Mills.  Withee retains all its small town charm with a friendly population of 507 people.

Located just off the Black River, Withee offers many opportunities for the outdoor enthusiast. The avid fisherman will find the perfect spot to fish. The North Woods offers many opportunities for those who enjoy hunting. For the active person, there is tennis, softball, biking, fishing, and snowmobiling.
