Help Is On The Way: Pronunciation Guide for Wisconsin City, Town & County Names

By
Real Estate Broker Owner with Madeline Island Realty 50317-90

"Miss Pronouncer" has come to the rescue!

The Miss Pronouncer website is described as a "resource for audio pronunciations of cities, parks, lawmakers, Indian tribes, towns, counties, villages, forests and sports figures specific to Wisconsin".  The site provides audio guides to pronunciation of all the above, plus photos, fun facts, links to tourism resources and more.

You can look up names of legislators, candidates, judges, townships, county seat locations, parks & forests, Native American casinos and more.  There are even lists of famous folks from Wisconsin on television and in film, theater, sports, music, comedy, politics, business, art and science.  This site could be considered the ultimate resource for Wisconsin trivia buffs!

In our own Apostle Islands area, I've heard tourists (and a few natives) struggle with words like "Chequamegon", "Lac Court Oreilles" and "Ashwabay".  Madeline Island visitors usually have trouble pronouncing "Equaysayway" as well! 

This website should be in everyone's "Favorites" on their laptop (or better yet, on a PDA).  It's something like Rosetta Stone for Midwesterners!

Eric-great job!  Yes the Horse and Colt Show is it.  My grandfather started it to show off his stud stock and it grew from there.  My mom who is now 93 and my Aunt now 96 along were the the "grand marshals" for the parade for the 75th anniversary.  My grandfather had about 400 acres and was of course a dairy farmer.  I spent at least a couple of weeks every summer on the farm.  According to my mom the cliffs that we could see from the family farm were formed when the glaciers pulled away from the area.  Now about the other area I used to spend time in the summer....Oconomowoc :-)

Cindy, Oconomowoc is very pretty too!  I love Lac LaBelle & the Lake Okauchee area.  Most of the time, I'm heading to Milwaukee or Chicago and I wind up driving past it, unfortunately. 

Oconomowoc is supposed to mean "where the waters meet". 

Do you ever come back to Wisconsin to visit?
