Waukesha (pronounced /?w??k????/) is a city in and the county seat of Waukesha County[1], Wisconsin, United States. As of the 2000 census, Waukesha had a total population of 64,826. The city is located adjacent to the Town of Waukesha.

In 2006, Money ranked Waukesha 36th on its list of the 100 best places to live in the United States.[2]

History

The area that the city now encompasses was first inhabited in 1834. By 1846, the area was incorporated as the Village of Prairieville.[3] On February 8, 1847, it changed its name to Waukesha,[4] and in 1896, Waukesha incorporated as a city.[5]

Waukesha was known for its extremely clean and good-tasting spring water and was called a spa town. This earned the city the nicknames "Spring City" and "Saratoga of the West". However, emissions have since ruined these springs, and a number have gone dry. But during this particular era in the late 1800s and early 1900s, many celebrities of their day came to reside there for a while, such as Mary Todd Lincoln after her husband, President Abraham Lincoln's, death.[6]

During the Cold War Waukesha County hosted three Nike Missile batteries, which were located in the City of Waukesha as well as nearby Muskego and Lannon. In the City of Waukesha the U.S. Army and later the Wisconsin National Guard operated the command and control center from 1956-70 at what is now Hillcrest Park on Davidson Road. The missile pits existed near the corner of Cleveland Av. and Hwy 164 - first holding Ajax missiles with conventional warheads and later the nuclear equipped Hercules warhead. The Hercules provided a similar nuclear capability as that of the atomic bomb dropped on Nagasaki in WWII. The Midwest Chapter of the Cold War Museum has promoted the preservation of the Hillcrest Park site as a local Cold War museum, honoring Cold War veterans and commemorating America's longest and costliest conflict. [1]

In 2006, Waukesha had a non-partisan election for mayor. Local pundits, however, labeled Ann Nischke as the Republicans' candidate and Larry Nelson as the Democrats' candidate. Larry Nelson won the election, which may show a change of politics in historically conservative Waukesha County.[2] Nelson is a member of the Mayors Against Illegal Guns Coalition,[7] a bi-partisan group with a stated goal of "making the public safer by getting illegal guns off the streets." The Coalition is co-chaired by Boston Mayor Thomas Menino and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

Waukesha's name

The name of the city is often misrepresented as meaning "fox" or "little foxes," though it is actually an Anglicization of the name Ojibwe Waagoshag or Potawatomi word Wau-tsha. Wauke-tsha was actually the leader of the local tribe at the time of first European settlement of Waukesha. This is confirmed by accounts of Increase Lapham, an early settler and historian in the region.[8] Original accounts by Lapham indicate that the original word for "Fox" was Pishtaka. [9] Morris Cutler, one of the earliest inhabitants, would also tell visitors about the original chief Wau-tsha. Since then, the name has often been misquoted as Wauk-Tsha.[10]

Teens also call it "Sha Town" or simply "the sha".[3]

City technology

Cellnet Technology Inc (based in Alpharetta, Georgia) plans to make Waukesha the second community in Wisconsin outfitted with a city-wide Wi-Fi network blanket. (Midwest Fiber Networks is scheduled to make Milwaukee the state's first wi-fi municipality by summer 2006.)[17]

Cellnet, which began working on a similar "blanket" for Madison, Wisconsin in early 2006, had planned to present their idea to Waukesha's Information Technology Advisory Committee in February 2006. If the proposed installation of the network goes through, city residents would only have to buy a wireless card (typically $50 USD) to gain access to the internet from any area in Waukesha.
