Sheboygan Wisconsin History
The Sheboygan, Wisconsin Metropolitan Statistical Area, with a population of 115,507, is one of the largest metropolitan areas in the state of Wisconsin and the second largest city in Wisconsin. The city is located on the west side of Lake Michigan, south of Milwaukee, and east of Lake Michigan. How it got its name is a bit of a mystery, but the city was originally located at the intersection of North Main Street and West Michigan Avenue in the north - in central Wisconsin in 1854.

In 1909, his son John, still living on a reservation, visited his old friends in Boygan County. The village was founded in 1852 by N.C. Harmon, just a few years after his return from the Indian reservation.
