Welcome to the Crossroads of the North


Where Highway 70 meets Highway 53 and Highway 63 ~ all roads lead to Spooner!

Established as a City in 1909, we keep growing and expanding to the fine City we are today.  The 2010 Census indicates we have a population of 2,682.

Spooner is a perfect place for a getaway or place to settle down.  You could retire here, raise a family, or bring your business.  We are far enough up north to have great fishing and hunting and yet have great shopping.  You are living the dream in this area! 

There is a new High School that provides the best upscale education and athletics departments.  Our Middle School is newly remodeled to accommodate the newest technology. Between the High School, Elementary School and the Middle School, there is a terrific walking and biking trail.  The area has benches and exercise stations along the trail and includes a Frisbee golf course.  In the winter, this area is popular with cross country skiers and snowshoers. This project has been a joint effort between the Community, City and School Systems to develop this park area. 

Bring your commerce here and grow with the community.  You can have your business in Spooner while being able to toss a fly rod or sit in your deer stand after work!

We can't say enough about the businesses in Spooner.  There is a very unique book and yarn store, a complete pharmacy that sells prescriptions to puzzles, several enticing restaurants (you will want to try them all!), clothing, shoes, furniture, fabric, a charming little general store that has many 'old-fashioned toys' and gourmet chocolates, an award winning bakery and an outfitters store.   Whether you are antiquing, looking for new art or window shopping, Spooner has an assortment of shopping experiences waiting for you.  We also have two veterinaries for your animal needs and a world famous rodeo in July. 

So what are you waiting for, plan your next trip, whether business or personal, to Spooner!
