Life in Oshkosh

Oshkosh, Wisconsin is a city in Winnebago County. According to a Census estimate from 2007, its population is approximately 64,000 people.

Oshkosh is named the Menominee Chief Oshkosh, whose name means "claw" in the Menominee language. He was one of the first Native Americans in the area to make contact with European settlers and fur traders in the 18th Century.

During the early 19th Century, the area gradually grew as a trading post for furs, meat, and other natural resources that were abundant in the frontier. By the mid-19th Century, the industrial revolution was underway, and Oshkosh, Wisconsin's economy boomed thanks to its abundant lumber, and the building boom brought on by industry. The presence of navigable waterways and, later, the arrival of a railroad made the area even more attractive for this industry.

Modernly, Oshkosh is a fairly quiet city, with a large number of residential neighborhoods. Its economy is faring relatively well, compared to other cities in the region, doing slightly better than the national average in several indicators, such as unemployment and the percentage of people below the poverty line.
