Kenosha, Wisconsin

Kenosha is located on the western side of Lake Michigan near the Illinois / Wisconsin border. Originally known as Pike Creek, the city's name was changed to Southport to reflect the importance of early maritime commerce on Lake Michigan. In 1850, the city was incorporated and renamed Kenosha, which is based on a Potawatomi Indian word "kenozio" for Northern Pike. Kenosha was the home to the Nash Motor Company, Simmons Mattress and American Motors. Several other companies are located in the city: Jockey International, Daimler Chrysler Corp, Ocean Spray, SnapOn Tools and G. LeBlanc Corp.

To travel to the City of Kenosha, take Highway 158 (52nd Street) east from I-94. 52nd Street ends at Kenosha Harbor.
