Nestled among the wooded hills and farmland of Manitowoc County, the village of Saint Nazianz was founded before Wisconsin became a state. Its first settlers were German immigrants intent on starting a religious commune. Although it has remained small, Saint Nazianz has evolved into a modern community offerring amenities that make it a great place to live, work, and play.


  • Population: 729
  • Founded: 1854
  • Incorporated: 1956
  • County: Manitowoc
  • Location: Approximately 6 miles West of I43 (exit 144) on Cnty Highway C



Advanced Disposal has stopped garbage pickup in the village today (Tuesday, 2-12) because of the snow. The truck keeps getting stuck in the streets, and the grader is busy in the county and has not come through.

Put your garbage carts away. And if your working neighbor’s carts are out, please put them near their house so they do not get buried when the grader does come through. Thanks for everyone's cooperation!
