Outagamie County

Outagamie County was created in 1851 by separation from Brown County. The county, covering 640 square miles, is located in east-central Wisconsin, along the Fox River, near the northern end of Lake Winnebago. The region was once the hunting and fishing grounds for several Native American tribes including the Menominee, Outagamie and Winnebago. The name Outagamie is derived from a Native American word meaning “dwellers on either shore” or “dwellers on the other side of the stream”.
