Introduction to Mukwonago, Wisconsin
The area now known as Mukwonago was originally a Native American village and the tribal seat of the Potawatomi Indian’s Beer Clan. The name of the area was derived from the Native American term "mequanego," meaning "place of the bear." Sewall Andrews, Ira Blood, and Thomas Sugden were among the founders of the community. Many roads and streets in the area have been named in their honor.
