The Stratford Area Chamber of Commerce was established to promote the commercial, agricultural, industrial, and civic interests of the community. The objective of the SACC is to nurture business interests in order to provide a progressive and healthy balance between business and community. The Village of Stratford is located in the southwest portion of Marathon County, Wisconsin, at the intersection of State Highways 97 and 153.
Named after the Canadian hometown of the Connor Family, Stratford began as a "company town" in the late 1800's, settled primarily by lumberjacks and farmers. Now 120 years following incorporation in 1891, Stratford bursts with a diverse population nearing 1,600.
In the early 1900's members of the Stratford community organized as the "Stratford Businessmen's Association". This association promoted the commercial, industrial and civic interests of Stratford until 1984. On March 14, 1984 the Stratford Businessmen's Association was incorporated under the laws of the State of Wisconsin and became known as the Stratford Area Chamber of Commerce.
Whether a newcomer, a life-long resident, or looking for a place to call "home", Stratford offers affordable housing, excellent public and parochial school choices, a rich park system, various church affiliations, thriving business and industry, and many recreational opportunities, all within this welcoming community!
