Pardeeville, founded by John Pardee in the mid 1800s, is located 35 miles north of Madison on State Highway 22. A few of Pardeeville's assets include Chandler Park, which is almost completely surrounded by beautiful Park Lake, the Angie Williams Cox Library, as well as the Columbia County Historical Museum. The Village encompasses 763 acres* and had a 2000 Census population of 1,982.
One summer event is the Watermelon Festival at Chandler Park the first Sunday after Labor Day. Pardeeville is surrounded by many campgrounds, farm markets and a very large Amish settlement to the north. For all four seasons, Pardeeville is a great place to live or visit.
