Wisconsin was admitted as the 30th state on May 29, 1848 It is the 23rd largest state by total area and the 20th most populous. The state capital is Madison, and its largest city is Milwaukee, which is located on the western shore of Lake Michigan. The word Wisconsin originates from the name given to the Wisconsin River by one of the Algonquian-speaking Native American groups living in the region at the time of European contact.

Administrative Divisions of Wisconsin

The state is divided into 72 counties, which are divided into 1,255 unincorporated towns. Wisconsin towns are similar to civil townships in other states and often have the same names as adjacent cities or villages. As of 2015, Wisconsin had 190 cities and 407 villages which are autonomous incorporated areas within one or more counties. Villages provide fewer municipal services than cities and have more limited taxing authority. See Administrative divisions of Wisconsin on Wikipedia for more information.
