These early inhabitants, called Paleo-Indians , hunted now-extinct ice age animals such as the Boaz mastodon , a prehistoric mastodon skeleton unearthed along with spear points in southwest Wisconsin. Toward the end of this period, Wisconsin was the heartland of the " Effigy Mound culture", which built thousands of animal-shaped mounds across the landscape.
Even so, French traders continued to work in the region after the war, and some, beginning with Charles de Langlade in , now settled in Wisconsin permanently, rather than returning to British-controlled Canada. The British gradually took over Wisconsin during the French and Indian War , taking control of Green Bay in and gaining control of all of Wisconsin in Like the French, the British were interested in little but the fur trade. One notable event in the fur trading industry in Wisconsin occurred in , when two free African Americans set up a fur trading post among the Menominee at present day Marinette.
The first permanent settlers, mostly French Canadians , some Anglo- New Englanders and a few African American freedmen, arrived in Wisconsin while it was under British control. Charles Michel de Langlade is generally recognized as the first settler, establishing a trading post at Green Bay in , and moving there permanently in The French residents at the trading post in what is now Green Bay, referred to the town as "La Baye", however British fur traders referred to it as "Green Bay", because the water and the shore assumed green tints in early spring.
The old French title was gradually dropped, and the British name of "Green Bay" eventually stuck. The region coming under British rule had virtually no adverse effect on the French residents as the British needed the cooperation of the French fur traders and the French fur traders needed the goodwill of the British. During the French occupation of the region licenses for fur trading had been issued scarcely and only to select groups of traders, whereas the British, in an effort to make as much money as possible from the region, issued licenses for fur trading freely, both to British and French residents.
The fur trade in what is now Wisconsin reached its height under British rule, and the first self-sustaining farms in the state were established as well. From to , Green Bay was a prosperous community which produced its own foodstuff, built graceful cottages and held dances and festivities. Wisconsin became a territorial possession of the United States in after the American Revolutionary War. However, the British remained in control until after the War of , the outcome of which finally established an American presence in the area.
The prospect of easy mineral wealth drew immigrants from throughout the U. Some miners found shelter in the holes they had dug, and earned the nickname "badgers", leading to Wisconsin's identity as the "Badger State". The Winnebago War of and the Black Hawk War of culminated in the forced removal of Native Americans from most parts of the state.
By fall of that year, the best prairie groves of the counties surrounding what is now Milwaukee were occupied by farmers from the New England states. Yankees from New England and upstate New York seized a dominant position in law and politics, enacting policies that marginalized the region's earlier Native American and French-Canadian residents.
The growing population allowed Wisconsin to gain statehood on May 29, , as the 30th state. Between and , Wisconsin's non-Indian population had swollen from 31, to , Over a third of residents , were foreign born, including 38, Germans, 28, British immigrants from England, Scotland, and Wales, and 21, Irish. Only about 63, residents in had been born in Wisconsin. Nelson Dewey , the first governor of Wisconsin , was a Democrat.
Dewey oversaw the transition from the territorial to the new state government. Politics in early Wisconsin were defined by the greater national debate over slavery. A free state from its foundation, Wisconsin became a center of northern abolitionism. The debate became especially intense in after Joshua Glover , a runaway slave from Missouri , was captured in Racine. Glover was taken into custody under the Federal Fugitive Slave Law , but a mob of abolitionists stormed the prison where Glover was held and helped him escape to Canada.
In a trial stemming from the incident, the Wisconsin Supreme Court ultimately declared the Fugitive Slave Law unconstitutional. Wisconsin's economy also diversified during the early years of statehood. While lead mining diminished, agriculture became a principal occupation in the southern half of the state. Railroads were built across the state to help transport grains to market, and industries like J. Wisconsin briefly became one of the nation's leading producers of wheat during the s.
These economic activities had dire environmental consequences. By the close of the 19th century, intensive agriculture had devastated soil fertility, and lumbering had deforested most of the state. Beginning in the s, farmers in Wisconsin shifted from wheat to dairy production in order to make more sustainable and profitable use of their land. Many immigrants carried cheese-making traditions that, combined with the state's suitable geography and dairy research led by Stephen Babcock at the University of Wisconsin , helped the state build a reputation as "America's Dairyland".
Manufacturing also boomed in Wisconsin during the early 20th century, driven by an immense immigrant workforce arriving from Europe. Industries in cities like Milwaukee ranged from brewing and food processing to heavy machine production and tool-making, leading Wisconsin to rank 8th among U.
The early 20th century was also notable for the emergence of progressive politics championed by Robert M. Between and , Progressive Republicans in Wisconsin created the nation's first comprehensive statewide primary election system,  the first effective workplace injury compensation law,  and the first state income tax ,  making taxation proportional to actual earnings.
The progressive Wisconsin Idea also promoted the statewide expansion of the University of Wisconsin through the UW-Extension system at this time. Commons and Harold Groves helped Wisconsin create the first unemployment compensation program in the United States in In the immediate aftermath of World War II, citizens of Wisconsin were divided over things such as the creation of the United Nations, support for the European recovery, and the growth of the Soviet Union's power.
However, when Europe divided into Communist and capitalist camps and the Communist revolution in China succeeded in , public opinion began to move towards support for the protection of democracy and capitalism against Communist expansion. Wisconsin took part in several political extremes in the mid to late 20th century, ranging from the anti-communist crusades of Senator Joseph McCarthy in the s to the radical antiwar protests at UW-Madison that culminated in the Sterling Hall bombing in August The state became a leader in welfare reform under Republican Governor Tommy Thompson during the s.
Navy battleships, BB-9 and BB , were named for the state.

With its location between the Great Lakes and the Mississippi River, Wisconsin is home to a wide variety of geographical features.
The state is divided into five distinct regions. In the middle of the state, the Central Plain has some unique sandstone formations like the Dells of the Wisconsin River in addition to rich farmland.
The Eastern Ridges and Lowlands region in the southeast is home to many of Wisconsin's largest cities. The bedrock of the Niagara Escarpment is dolomite , while the two shorter ridges have limestone bedrock.
In the southwest, the Western Upland is a rugged landscape with a mix of forest and farmland, including many bluffs on the Mississippi River.
This region is part of the Driftless Area , which also includes portions of Iowa , Illinois , and Minnesota. This area was not covered by glaciers during the most recent ice age, the Wisconsin Glaciation. Langlade County has a soil rarely found outside of the county called Antigo silt loam.
Areas under the management of the National Park Service include the following: There is one national forest managed by the U.
Since its founding, Wisconsin has been ethnically heterogeneous. Following the period of French fur traders, the next wave of settlers were miners, many of whom were Cornish , who settled the southwestern area of the state. The next wave was dominated by "Yankees", migrants of English descent from New England and upstate New York ; in the early years of statehood, they dominated the state's heavy industry, finance, politics and education.
Between and , large numbers of European immigrants followed them, including Germans , Scandinavians the largest group being Norwegian , and smaller groups of Belgians , Dutch , Swiss , Finns , Irish , Poles , Italians , Luxembourgers , and others. In the 20th century, large numbers of Mexicans and African Americans came, settling mainly in Milwaukee; and after the end of the Vietnam War came an influx of Hmongs.
In the same year, 5. The six largest ancestry groups in Wisconsin are: The various ethnic groups settled in different areas of the state. Although Germans settled throughout the state, the largest concentration was in Milwaukee. Norwegians settled in lumbering and farming areas in the north and west.

Property taxes are the most important tax revenue source for Wisconsin's local governments, as well as major methods of funding school districts, vocational technical colleges, special purpose districts and tax incremental finance districts.
Equalized values are based on the full market value of all taxable property in the state, except for agricultural land. In order to provide property tax relief for farmers, the value of agricultural land is determined by its value for agricultural uses, rather than for its possible development value.

Assessments prepared by local assessors are used to distribute the property tax burden within individual municipalities. Wisconsin does not assess a tax on intangible property. Wisconsin does not collect inheritance taxes. Until January 1, , Wisconsin's estate tax was decoupled from the federal estate tax laws; therefore the state imposed its own estate tax on certain large estates.
