Little Chute History

Prior to the arrival of the European explorers, it is believed that the area was inhabited by the Oneota Native Americans. The French were the first Europeans to arrive in the area. In 1634, Jean Nicolet reached Fox at the Bay of Green Bay and established a trade post in the area. The area became a part of the Wisconsin Territories in 1836. In 1898, the residents of the area petitioned for the official incorporation of the community as the Village of La Chute. The incorporation was granted in 1899.
