The current website was designed by village resident, Sheridan Jones McCrae in 2015 using WordPress. The design process included significant input from fellow residents during interviews and an online survey. The orange/grey/green/white color scheme reflect the village homes, brick pathways, field-stone walls and surrounding forest.
Sheridan is a multimedia communications specialist who enjoys sharing stories and knowledge about public health and environmental links through use of photography, video, writing and digital strategy. Originally from Australia, she has lived in the village since 2013 with Scottish husband, Dave and loves mountain-biking, running and walking her dog, Finn on Dickeyville’s nearby trails.

The Website Logo
The logo featured on the website was created based on signficant creative contribution from Sheryl Schmidt.

The township scene also featured on previous year July 4th parade t-shirts and coffee mugs given to new residents.
