History of South Milwaukee, Wisconsin

South Milwaukee, located on the shores of Lake Michigan and banks Oak Creek, was incorporated as a village in 1892, following in Whitefish Bay's footsteps. The new town included an old settlement that dated back to the 1840s-1850s, which became known for its rural industries like sawmills or grist mills but also had some unique places such these woolen factories where they made clothes out animal skins until they closed down around 1900 due to lack popularity among customers who preferred machine washable fabrics at home instead.

The crossroads served commercial businesses and residential areas further away, yet everyone could commute easily because roads were well established when South Milwaukee was founded. 

The Chicago Road was a major transportation artery that ran through the heart of modern-day Milwaukee, Wisconsin. This road got its name from being close to two other avenues: The Lake Michigan shoreline and the US Well coffin route. It became necessary because it allowed settlers access to what would become America's most fantastic city - Chicago! Railroads were also built along this strip during colonial times, but by the late 1800s, rail traffic had largely declined while vulnerable bridges took their place. Yet, even though there may have been fewer trains running across these spans, they still managed an average speed of over 20 mph, thanks to the excellent infrastructure.

South Milwaukee was an industrial/residential suburb that started as a healthful escape from the city’s industry. But when South Milwaukee Corporation convinced Bucyrus Steam Shovel Company to relocate there, they attracted workers and created demand for housing in just one year! The new village promised 13 acres of land next door at Northwestern Railroad trackage along with an agreement on dredging Oak Creek so it can be used as a harbor front or breakwater project; while also promising more benefits like cheap rates (rates were only 2 cents per square foot) which made people want to move into this “city within borders."

The people of South Milwaukee had been waiting for years to see their city grow. The following five saw further expansion, including a waterworks system that would soon provide electricity and sewers to bring modern living standards closer to what was happening across town at Chevrolet Stadium, where sporting events were becoming popular among Creamer’s loyal fan base who flocked there every weekend during the summer months so that they could catch one game per day while enjoying food from nearby restaurants like Puckett'shelps make them feel right at home after spending all week long working hard on building gardens outside because that’s how people unwind on their days off!

The town of South Milwaukee has been home to several industrial enterprises throughout the 20th century. In connection with the global economy, employment fluctuated wildly. It remained at its peak level for nearly 25 years before declining again in recent times due mainly to an economic shift away from heavy industry toward lighter manufacturing sectors such as information technology or healthcare services which can be more easily shipped overseas when they're not needed within American borders (a point made recently by President Trump). Today there are still many buildings left over from this past heyday, including one block containing almost every major company that had anything whatsoever to do with the 400 jobs the local population back then - Bucyrus Corporation was founded in 1881, Harnischfeger Corporation had its start on Milwaukee’s south side as well. Today these companies are gone, but their former factory buildings continue to stand as a testament to our community’s proud industrial heritage.
