Lifestyles & Neighborhoods
Agrand array of homes line the streets of Antigo and extend into the countryside surrounding the city. Within the community, homes are set apart from one another on large lots. There is usually plenty of sideyard for volleyball courts and children’s play apparatus and plenty of backyard too for patio barbecues and family fun.
Clermont and Edison Streets, close to downtown, are lined with ancient maples and homes that were built in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Many splendid examples of Victorian Era architecture are represented, intermixed with Cape Cod and American Foursquare designs from the early decades of the 20th century, as well as an occasional contemporary ranch style home. All are immaculately maintained.
At the edges of the city, homes look out onto farm fields. In the southeast area beyond the city limits where the land becomes hilly, are a mix of large executive style homes and mid-size homes tucked away in wooded lots. Around the county homes overlook rolling hills and beautiful streams. Country living at it’s finest.
In the downtown area and at other locations in Antigo are handsome apartment buildings, each with six to eight cozy units. The historic Opera House, built in 1904, became an Armory during World War I and was converted to apartments in the late 1970s.
