Eleva is located on the Northwest Corner of Trempealeau County. Eleva was settled in the 1870’s and was called New Chicago. It was later renamed Eleva and is know as the “Crossroads of Friendship”.
Highways 10 and 93 meet at the heart of town. Eleva is located on the Buffalo River with Big Creek and Adams Creek flowing into Eleva Pond. The creeks and pond offer top notch trout fishing.
Vacationers approaching Eleva from the North, over the Eleva ridge, will experience one of the most breathtaking views of the peaceful Beef River Valley. Eleva offers a beautiful park adjacent to the Eleva Pond on Highway 93. The park offers something for everyone; playground area, horseshoe pits, volleyball courts, softball field, charcoal pits and sheltered picnic areas.
Eleva has a population of 635, but during the first weekend in June, it swells to about 20,000. People come from miles to partake in the Eleva Broiler festival activities. Activities include great musical entertainment, a carnival, parades and some of “the best” charcoal chicken.
The railroad of 1889 no longer runs through Eleva, but has been replaced with The Buffalo River State Trail. The trail is multi-use. It runs from Fairchild to Mondovi and is used by snowmobilers, cross-country skiers, bicycle enthusiasts, horseback riders and other recreational vehicles.
