Manitowoc is a medium-sized city located on the shores of Lake Michigan. The area is rich in history. Originally the home of the Anishinaabe Indians, it was increasingly settled by white immigrants throughout the early to mid-1800s. Eventually the area became a Wisconsin county in 1838. Large groups of Germans settled the area, as well as people immigrating from Canada, Norway, and Britain. Manitowoc's economy was based on the shipbuilding industry, and provided many craft for sailing Lake Michigan and the St. Lawrence River.1
