Dodgeville Area Chamber
Back to Community Information
The City of Dodgeville is geographically located among sandstone bluffs, steep hills and gently rolling farmlands. The surrounding area is referred to as "unglaciated" because it was untouched by the glaciers that shaped much of the region's topography. It is also referred to as the "driftless region" because the absence of glaciers meant that no "drift" (or accumulated rock and soil) was left behind. Many people simply refer to this area as the "Uplands." By any name, it's no exaggeration to say that the surrounding area is a feast for the eyes with its rugged rock outcroppings, wildflower meadows and prairies, wooded hillsides, lakes and streams, and rolling farmlands.
