Sparta is part of the Coulee Region of beautiful western Wisconsin. Located on the banks of the LaCrosse River, the area is defined by densely-treed rolling hills and bluffs famous for their stunning fall colors. The town of about 10,000 is known as the Bicycling Capital of America for its conversion of a rail bed to a 32-mile bike trail that runs between Sparta and Elroy, passing through three rock tunnels and five small towns. Originally recognized for the healing powers of its artesian springs, Sparta is also close Fort McCoy, Wisconsin’s largest military base. Surrounded by natural beauty and big rivers, it’s also a favorite among fishermen. Businesses enjoy Sparta as well; the community is the international headquarters for Century Foods, Northern Engraving, F.A.S.T. Corp, McPherson Guitars, Lake States Lumber and Wesco Home Furnishings among others.
