Pardeeville – City of Lakes

9-7-13

Pardeeville is located in Columbia County, three miles north of Wyocena and home of their famous Watermelon Festival.  The village was founded by Yates Ashley and John S. Pardee. It was incorporated as a village in 1899. The village has two large lakes, Spring and Park Lake, so plenty of water recreation.

The downtown has several historic buildings and even a water tower like the one in Oregon

One of their most impressive structures is the Angie Williams Cox Library. These plaques are affixed to the outside of the building.  It also has a beautiful courtyard and clock to mind your time while you read your book!
