History of Kenosha County

The first residents of Kenosha County were the Paleo Indians. In the early 1830s, settlers came from New York and began to form their own communities on the land that would become Kenosha County. Due to their initial success thanks to help from the Western Emigration Company, more and more settlers ventured to Kenosha County, setting up their homes near Lake Michigan. During most of the 20th century, the City of Kenosha produced millions of automobiles though factories that would eventually become a part of Chrysler Corporation.
