Visiting Milwaukee

Milwaukee – Home to the Pettit Center

Milwaukee is largest city in Wisconsin and 30th largest (by population) in the United States. It is located on the western shore of Lake Michigan in southeastern Wisconsin. It is 90 miles north of Chicago and 70 miles east of Madison, the state capital.

The first Europeans to pass through the area were French missionaries and fur traders. In 1818, the French-Canadian explorer Solomon Juneau settled in the area, and in 1846 Juneau’s town combined with two neighboring towns to incorporate as the City of Milwaukee. Large numbers of German and other immigrants helped increase the city’s population during the 1840s and the following decades.
