The City:

Waupaca was originally inhabited by Menomonie and Chippewa tribes. President Buchanan's Proclamation in 1849 brought a band of five settlers from Plymouth, seeking the much talked about lands. Six years later Waupaca had two storekeepers and one newspaper - the Waupaca Spirit.

Around 1856 the first schoolhouse was built, and school ran a total of six months out of the year. Using oxen driven wagons it took about 3 weeks to travel 200 miles
