Milwaukee Bus Charter – Once known as “beer town”

Milwaukee is the largest city in the United States state of Wisconsin. Milwaukee is the county seat of Milwaukee County. On Lake Michigan, the city is situated in the southeast part of Wisconsin. Although French missionaries, in the seventeenth century, visited the site of Milwaukee, it was only in seventeen hundred and ninety five that Jacques Vieau established a fur trading post there. In eighteen hundred and eighteen, Vieau’s son in law, Solomon Juneau, who was an agent of the American Fur Company, made his home there. In eighteen hundred and thirty eight, the settlement merged with several neighboring villages to form Milwaukee. In eighteen hundred and forty six, it was incorporated as a city. After eighteen hundred and forty eight, there was a surge of German immigrants arriving. They contributed greatly to the city’s political, economic and cultural development. There are many theories about the origin of the word “Milwaukee”. It is even disputed. It may have come from the Potawatomi word “ Mahn-ah-wauk” which means ‘council grounds of the Potawatomi or from “Mah-an-wauk-seepe” meaning gathering place of rivers or from the Algonquian word “Milo-aki” meaning beautiful land.
