Area History

Wisconsin entered the Union on May 29th, 1848, as the 30th state. The state is named for the Wisconsin River, the name of which is derived from the French version of an Indian term which may mean, "gathering at the waters" or "place of the beaver." Wisconsin's nickname, the Badger State, refers to the miners who burrowed into the hillsides like badgers while searching for lead in the 1820's.
