Welcome from the County Board Chairman

County Board Chairman Dave Lienau welcomes you to the Door County Web Site.

Door County Government, established in 1851, provides services to the County’s 30,000 year round residents as well as a seasonal population whose size fluctuates throughout the year. The county seat is the City of Sturgeon Bay. The county consists of the city, fourteen towns and four villages covering the 492 square miles of the Door Peninsula.

Door County’s over 300 miles of shoreline, five state parks, nineteen county parks, and year round activities offer many the chance to relax and unwind. Throughout the changing seasons, each of the towns and villages, offers something for everyone. Activities are endless - art galleries, live music and theatre, cherry and apple orchards, golfing, boating, fishing, hiking, snowmobiling, cross country skiing, and the list goes on. The changing seasons add to the beauty of the peninsula.
