Milwaukee has a population of 598,916. It's the largest city in Wisconsin and the 30th most populous city in the United States. The name of Milwaukee has been said to come from the Potawatomi language minwaking or Ojibwe language omniowakiing, meaning "gathering place (by the water)." It's the birthplace of Heather Graham, Gene Wilder and author John Ridley. In the 1840s, Milwaukee saw a big influx of German immigrants and the city celebrates its German culture with Oktoberfest every October and German Fest in July. There have been five ships of the U.S. Navy named after Milwaukee, including USS Milwaukee.
Milwaukee is home to six Fortune 1000 manufacturers, including Harley-Davidson Inc., Johnson Controls and Rockwell Automation. Its metropolitan area is one of the top manufacturing centers in the United States, ranking #2 in percentage of workforce in the industry. Milwaukee's economy is also made up of many small-to-medium size companies, banks, services and one of the nation's ten largest insurance firms.
