Milwaukee (/mɪlˈwɔːki/, locally /məˈwɔːkiː/) is the largest city in the state of Wisconsin and the fifth-largest city in the Midwestern United States behind Chicago, Illinois, Columbus, Ohio, Indianapolis, Indiana, and Detroit, Michigan. The seat of Milwaukee County, it is on Lake Michigan’s western shore. Ranked by its estimated 2019 population of 590,157, Milwaukee is the 31st largest city in the United States and the third-largest city situated along one of the Great Lakes, behind Toronto and Chicago. It is the main cultural and economic center of the Milwaukee metropolitan area which had a population of 2,043,904 in the 2014 census estimate. It is the fourth-most densely populated metropolitan area in the Midwest, surpassed only by Chicago, Minneapolis-St. Paul and Detroit, respectively. Milwaukee is considered a “Gamma −” global city as categorized by the Globalization and World Cities Research Network with a regional GDP of over $105 billion.
The first recorded inhabitants of the Milwaukee area are the Algonquin and Siouan peoples. French Catholic Jesuits, who ministered to Native Americans and fur traders, were the first Europeans to pass through the area. In 1818, the French Canadian explorer Solomon Juneau established a permanent settlement, and in 1846, Juneau’s town combined with two neighboring towns to incorporate as the city of Milwaukee. Large numbers of German immigrants arrived during the late 1840s, after the German revolutions, with Poles and other immigrants from eastern Europe arriving in the following decades. Milwaukee is known for its brewing traditions that began with the German immigrants.
In the mid-twentieth century large numbers of African Americans moved to Milwaukee from southern states for work during the Great Migration. African Americans from Chicago descended from those who were part of the Great Migration have continued to move to the north side of Milwaukee since then. Milwaukee’s east side has attracted a population of Russians and other Eastern Europeans who began migrating in the 1990s after the end of the Cold War. Many Hispanics of mostly Puerto Rican and Mexican heritage live on the south side of Milwaukee.
Beginning in the early 21st century, the city has been undergoing its largest construction boom since the 1960s. Major new additions to the city in the past two decades include the Milwaukee Riverwalk, the Wisconsin Center, Miller Park, The Hop (streetcar system), an expansion to the Milwaukee Art Museum, Milwaukee Repertory Theater, and Pier Wisconsin, as well as major renovations to the UW–Milwaukee Panther Arena. The Fiserv Forum opened in late 2018 and hosts sporting events and concerts. Summerfest, the largest music festival in the world, is also a large economic engine and cultural attraction for the city. In 2018, Milwaukee was named “The Coolest City in the Midwest” by Vogue magazine.
