Wisconsin Of Interest

Wisconsin flagIn 1634, the French explorer Jean Nicolet landed at Green Bay, the first known European to visit Wisconsin. The French ceded the area to Great Britain in 1763, and it became part of the United States in 1783. It became the Wisconsin Territory in 1836 and a state in 1848.

Glacial activity resulted in over 8,000 lakes of many sizes in Wisconsin. The state is largely flat to rolling hills, with moderate hills in the southwest. The Wisconsin River, with its extensive dam system, bisects the state from north to south before heading west to join the Mississippi River. Also flowing into the Mississippi are the Black, the Flambeau, and the Chippewa Rivers. In the east, the Fox, the Wolf, the Peshtigo, and the Menominee Rivers drain into Lake Michigan.

Wisconsin landscape Much of Wisconsin is forested and forestry is a key industry in the state. Appleton and Green Bay have one of the largest paper products complexes in the nation. Iron mining was a major activity in the past, but has stopped since the late 1960s. Copper is now an important mineral. Wisconsin is well-known for its dairy industry, and it has one of the nation's largest dairy cattle herds. Other farm commodities include soybeans, corn, alfalfa, potatoes, oats, hay, and a large variety of fruits and vegetables.

Wisconsin had the nation's first kindergarden and the nation's first hydroelectric plant.
