A thriving community with a population of approximately 1,200 people
prides itself for its small-town way of life. Battle Creek is located
near the Elkhorn River in Madison County, less than 10 miles west
from Norfolk. Living in Battle Creek offers residents a suburban feel
and most residents own their homes. Many young couples and retirees
have moved to the area who hear about the good school system and
quiet small-town life. This charming community features an affordable
median housing, with many of the properties in the area featuring
large lots or rural acreage ideal for more space and growing
families. The Battle Creek Park is a fun attraction with a swimming
pool, club house, new playground equipment and sporting fields.
Hill Golf Course is located just three miles south of
town, and Oak Valley and Yellow Banks Wildlife Management Areas are
each located within five miles which offers over 600 acres of outdoor
recreation, including bird watching, hiking and seasonal hunting.
It’s a town event each year during Battle
Creek Summer City Fest which features a street dance,
parade, great barbecue, as well as fun activities for all ages.
