In the late 19th century, Waukesha became famous for its healing waters. People came from far and wide to heal and relax in the resort town. After the era of healing waters ended, Waukesha became a major manufacturer of water, beer, soda, dairy products, iron, and steel. The products would be shipped to Milwaukee and other port cities on Lake Michigan on Waukesha’s excellent road system.
