Learn more about Oconomowoc WI and why “Life Comes Naturally Here”!

Oconomowoc is a city located in Waukesha County, Wisconsin, U.S. Its name came from Coo-no-mo-wauk, the Potawatomi term for “waterfall.”

Before 1700, this region was inhabited by the Potawatomi. They descended from Woodland Indians known as “mound builders”.

The first white person recorded in the area was Amable Vicau, brother-in-law of Solomon Juneau, one of the founders of Milwaukee.

Oconomowoc was incorporated as a town in 1844. It was not until 1865 that it was incorporated as a city because of the sudden population growth.

And then in the 1870s, Oconomowoc started to become a summer resort spot. At the same time, large houses were established around the town’s lakes, particularly Oconomowoc Lake and Lac La Belle. Wealthy families from the Midwest then flocked to this area in search of homes for sale.

The city has a total area of 12.18 square miles, of which 11.54 square miles is land and 0.64 square miles is water. As of the 2010 census, there were 15,759 people, 6,256 households, and 4,270 families residing in the city.
