Waukesha, Wisconsin—Spring City

The city of Waukesha is located in southeastern Wisconsin, approximately 18 miles west of Milwaukee, 60 miles east of Madison and 90 miles north of Chicago. The country seat of Waukesha County and a suburb of Milwaukee, it is part of the Milwaukee metropolitan area. Nestled along the banks of the Fox River (which starts near Menomonee Falls and flows into the Illinois River), Waukesha encompasses a total area of 25.07 square miles. According to the 2010 census, the city had a population of 70,718 residents.

Waukesha’s history goes back to the beginning of the 19th century, when the first New England settlers arrived in the area that was then nothing but wild prairie and virgin forest. In 1847, one year after it was established as Prairieville, the village changed its name to Waukesha. In 1896, it was officially incorporated as a city. Although for years people believed that the origin of the name Waukesha is a Native American word meaning fox, or little foxes, the city takes its name after Wau-tcha (also spelled Wauk-tsha), the leader of the local Indian tribe at the time of the arrival of the first settlers.

Waukesha’s extremely pure and good-tasting natural spring water earned it the nicknames of “Spring City” and “Saratoga of the West.” Following the discovery of mineral springs, the 1870’s marked the beginning of the so-called Springs Era, a prosperous half-century during which Waukesha became a nationally recognized spa destination. Through 1920, people traveled cross-country to drink the water, giving rise to Waukesha’s health and tourism industries, as well as its many bottling and beverage businesses. Over the years, however, the healing properties of Waukesha’s natural springs have been spoiled by pollution and many of them have gone dry.

Today, Waukesha is one of the fastest-growing cities in the region, home to several nationally and internationally known companies, such as GE Healthcare, the global leader in medical imaging technology and the city’s largest employer. Considering its median household income of $58,070 and the $28,810 income per capita, it is no surprise that in 2012 Money Magazine ranked Waukesha as one of the “100 Best Places to Live” in the United States. Established in 1846, Waukesha’s Carroll University (formerly known as Carroll College) is the oldest college in Wisconsin. A perfect blend of urban and rural living, Waukesha’s revitalized downtown now includes a wonderful Riverwalk, a Historic complex and a variety of unique specialty shops, restaurants and businesses. Dotted with beautiful lakes, Waukesha offers abundant swimming, fishing, boating and other recreational possibilities. With six galleries and over 50 artists, a cultural museum and a new performing arts theater, Waukesha’s arts and culture scenes are anything but average. For music lovers and curiosity seekers, Waukesha is most recognizable as the birthplace of Les Paul, the legendary musician and inventor who designed one of the first solid-body electric guitars, which made the sound of rock and roll possible.
