The area that is now Kenosha has verifiable history dating 13000 years ago back to Paleo Indians. The original tribes that can be traced back in history include the Potawatomi and the Ojibwa Indians. It was a fertile area for food, especially with plenty of Pike that would swim up river from Lake Michigan to spawn.
European settlers arrived in the early 19th century as part of the Western Emigration Company. The company was looking to purchase land and set up a town and kept failing in their bid, each time moving further west and trying again. They were finally successful at Pike's Creek, today's Kenosha. The next phase in this town's history saw populations swell and the town become involved with shipping across the Great Lakes. The name changed at the time and it became known as Southport. The shipping industry was a boost to the local economy and was one of Kenosha's economic boom times. It was only after Southport, did the name Kenosha come about.
The town once again shifted its economic base. This time it became a hub of automobile production. Cars like the Hudson, Lafayette and AMC and even prototypes for steam driven cars were manufactured here.
