A town in northern Wisconsin, near the north shore of Lake Michigan's Green Bay. Noted for being completely destroyed by the deadliest forest fire in American history; some 1200 people were killed. News of the disaster was slow to emerge and little noted in the rest of the nation, since the tragedy took place on October 8, 1871 and newspapers were full of news of the Chicago Fire just 200 miles to the south.

Also, the name of a band of Menominee who settled in the area.
