On the shores of Pewaukee Lake, Waukesha Beach has grown from a small shoreline favored by locals to a swimming hotspot that attracts tourists from around the Milwaukee metro area.
The History of Waukesha
Shortly after the Louisiana Purchase in 1803, the area around Waukesha was settled by a mix of pioneers, land investors and fur trappers. Around the turn of the century, Waukesha began to welcome relatively upscale residents and visitors, thanks to the many natural springs in the area. It was advertised as a "spa town," where tourists could come to relax and take advantage of the purported healing properties of the spring water. The small town was flooded with visitors, including Richard W. Sears (founder of Sears and Roebuck), who spent his retirement and final years in Waukesha.
The Waukesha area is an important player in the Milwaukee-area economy, and major employers include companies in retail, manufacturing and business services. The area's largest retailers are Kohl's and Target, while Waukesha's second-largest employer is Quad/Graphics, a commercial printing company. Health care employers are plentiful in Waukesha, and the biggest companies are ProHealth Care, GE Healthcare, Community Memorial Hospital and Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare.
