Brief Information About Milwaukee


Milwaukee is the largest city in Wisconsin. It is located in the southeast part of the state on Lake Michigan.

The origins of the word “Milwaukee” are disputed; it may come from the Potawatomi “Mahn-ah-wauk,” meaning council grounds of the Potawatomi; “Mah-an-wauk-seepe,” meaning gathering place of rivers; or the Algonquian “Milo-aki,”which means beautiful land.

The first permanent white settler, Vieau's son-in-law, Solomon Juneau, an agent of the American Fur Company, made his home in Milwaukee in 1818. The settlement merged with several neighboring villages in 1838 to form Milwaukee, and the city was incorporated in 1846. A large wave of German immigrants arrived after 1848 and contributed greatly to the city's political, economic, and cultural development.

Milwaukee was once known as a “beer town,”  but only a small percentage of its workforce is now involved in beer production. However, beer still plays an important role in the state's economy, and almost 11% of the nation's malt beverage is produced there.

Milwaukee's high-tech manufacturing community is one of the largest among the nation's major metropolitan areas.
Milwaukee is one of the greatest industrial centers in the country and one of the largest Great Lakes ports. Manufacturing remains strong, and Milwaukee manufacturers are national leaders in lithographic commercial printing and the production of medical diagnostic instruments, small gasoline engines, malt beverages, iron and steel forgings, mining machinery, and robotics.
