Milwaukee is the largest city in the state of Wisconsin and 22nd largest (by population) in the United States.
The city is the county seat of Milwaukee County and is located on the southwestern shore of Lake Michigan.
As of a revised 2006 U.S. Census estimate, Milwaukee had a population of 602,782.
The city is the main cultural and economic center of the MilwaukeeRacineWaukesha Metropolitan Area
with a population of 1,773,519.
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.
Once known almost exclusively as a brewing and manufacturing powerhouse, Milwaukee has taken steps in
recent years to reshape its image.
In the past decade, major new additions to the city have included the Milwaukee Riverwalk,
the Midwest Airlines Center, Miller Park, an internationally renowned addition to the Milwaukee Art Museum,
and Pier Wisconsin, as well as major renovations to the Milwaukee Auditorium and U.S. Cellular Arena.
In addition, many new skyscrapers, condos, lofts, and apartments have been constructed in neighborhoods on
and near the lakefront and riverbanks.
