Historic Map - Sheboygan, WI - 1885

Sheboygan, Wis., county seat of Sheboygan Cty. 1885. Drawn by H. Wellge. Beck & Pauli, litho.

This reproduction panoramic map of Sheboygan, Wisconsin was drawn by Henry Wellge and published by Norris, Wellge & Co. in 1885. Sheboygan, county seat for Sheboygan County, was settled in the mid-1800's on Lake Michigan at the mouth of the Sheboygan River, as a farming community raising wheat and cheese. With the addition of the port system, its railroad connections and its industrial craftsmen, Sheboygan earned the nickname "City of Cheese, Chairs and Children".
