HISTORY
Created in 1840 and organized in 1848.  The name Winnebago is of Algonquin origin and is said to mean 'people dwelling by the fetid or ill-smelling water', which may refer to a sulfur spring.

The county seat, Oshkosh, was incorporated as a city in 1853, when it already had a population of nearly 2,800 (source: wikipedia)
