A Brief History of Manitowoc WI
Manitowoc WI’s unique name comes from a Ojibwe word meaning dwelling of the great spirit. The Menominee language translates it to place of the spirits. French fur traders arrived in 1673, an industry that saw establishment of the Northwest Fur Company by 1795.
The land where Manitowoc WI sits was a product of negotiations from the 1836 Treaty of the Cedars. It was chartered as a village in 1851, and then later incorporated as a city in 1870.
In the present day, Manitowoc WI offers several shopping options as well as a revived downtown area. You’ll find Holy Family College, the University of Wisconsin at Manitowoc, and Lakeshore Technical College for higher-education opportunities.
Over the years, notable residents have included Wisconsin State Representatives James Sibree Anderson, Garey Bies, Dale Bolle, and Benjamin W. Diederich, as well as comedian Charlie Berens, violinist Giulia Bustabo, and Cowboys’ offensive lineman Doug Free.
