"Elkhorn is located in Walworth County, Southwest of Milwaukee. With a population of about 10,000 people, Elkhorn is a community surrounded by lakes and trees. The area’s beauty and fertile soil brought settlers to the town in 1836. Colonel Samuel Phoenix spotted a rack of elk antlers in a tree and proclaimed the city “Elk Horn”. The area is well known for hosting the Walworth County Fair, the largest fair in Wisconsin after the Wisconsin State Fair. The city glows during the Christmas season, deemed “Christmas Card Town” since World War II. "
