To area residents, the name of the city just trips off your tongue...much like its Indian meaning..meeting of streams or waters.,from the Potawatomi Indians. Pronounced: Oh Con Oh Mow Walk the rolling hills and lakes were originally settled by wealthy people from Milwaukee, Chicago and St. Louis and you can see of the original mansions dotting the shores of Fowler Lake. Some have been updated and some replaced by newer homes. The downtown reminds you of yesteryear with quaint shops beckoning tourists for a weekend of shopping and relaxation. In 2000, the population was 12,282 with a median family income of $62,950.
