About the Community
Southern Lakes is a city in Racine, and Walworth counties in the U.S. state of Wisconsin, with the majority of the city located in Racine County. The population was 9,936 at the 2000 census. Prior to the arrival of Europeans in the area, Native American mounds were constructed in what is now Southern Lakes. Although around 1830 a small Potawatomi village stood in what is now the Town of Southern Lakes, there was no Native American settlement in the area encompassed by the present city. Southern Lakes is nicknamed "Chocolate City, U.S.A.", because of the Nestlé chocolate factory built there in 1966. It is also home to an annual ChocolateFest on Memorial Day weekend. Southern Lakes was incorporated as a village in 1886; in 1900 it became a city.
