New London

New London, also known as “The City on the Pond,” is one place you should put on your list of “small towns to visit.” The picturesque town is located north of Spicer off Highway 23 on Highway 9. There’s so much to be said about this small town with a New England charm. It offers an experience unlike others with recreation, rich history, community celebrations, fine art, shopping and dining.

One of the unique qualities about this community is the diversity of talent among the locals. Don’t be surprised to see beautiful artistic creations on the walls of buildings or inside one of the art galleries in town. You’ll also find many locals showcasing their talents under the bright lights on the stage of the The Little Theatre. Come summertime, the Little Crow Ski Team performs for the community on the Crow River at Neer Park. One way or another, New London will certainly go above and beyond your expectations.

New London is part of Independent School District No. 345, otherwise known as NL-S (New London-Spicer) Schools—Home of the Wildcats! They proudly host the High School, Middle School, Prairie Woods Elementary and ALP (alternative learning).


City Council meets at 5:30 p.m. on the first and third Wednesday of each month.
