City of Menasha
County: Winnebago, Calumet
Population (2010 Census): 17,353
Located on the north shore of Wisconsin’s largest inland lake, Menasha enjoys a beautiful waterfront setting. This navigable waterway running through the heart of Menasha provides recreational opportunities for residents and visitors alike. Waterpower afforded by the Fox River helped establish Menasha as an industrial center in the mid to late 19th century. Its industrial heritage carries through to today with the paper industry providing the economic underpinnings of the city and the area.
Menasha retains elements of its historic character in a rejuvenated downtown and has reoriented itself to the waterfront with an 87-slip marina.
Impressive community parks and the newly developed Heckrodt Wetland Reserve reflect the city’s commitment to providing opportunities for everyone to enjoy its abundant resources.
