HISTORY
Founded in 1861
Shawano County's county seat is Shawano.
Its name is from a modified Ojibwa term meaning "southern"; there was also a Menominee Chief Sawanoh which may be whom the county is named after.
The reservation of the federally recognized Stockbridge-Munsee Community encompasses the towns of Bartelme and Red Springs.  Their ancestors traditionally lived in the East along the Hudson River Valley.

Shawano County was the southern boundary of the Ojibwa nation.  A historical marker placed in 1958 near the lake along Highway 22 states the lake was named as the southern boundary of Chippewa (Ojibwe) territory.
