History

History

Wisconsin Street, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

The first residents in Milwaukee were Native American tribes. In the late 17th and 18th centuries, the French traders and missionaries arrived in the area. In the year 1785, Alexis Laframboise was the first resident of European descent in the Milwaukee area hailing from Michigan. The name "Milwaukee" originates from the Algonquian word millioke, meaning "good," "beautiful," and "pleasant land". It was in the 1880s that the word Milwaukee became the “official” city name. During the 1840s and 1850s, Milwaukee grew with an influx of mainly German settlers. By 1900, 34 percent of Milwaukee's population was of German background, making it the “most German city” in America. In 2006, the National Trust for Historic Preservation named Milwaukee as one of the "Dozen Distinctive Destinations" as evidenced by its large European heritage.
