Waupaca, Wisconsin, USA

Waupaca was first settled in June 1849 by Capt. Augustus Hill Sr. and his sons, on a small waterfall along the Waupaca River. At the time, the area was home to the Menominee and Potowatomi tribes. The name for the settlement came either from the Indian term "waubuck seba," meaning pale water, or from a Potowatomi man named Sam Wapuka, or Chief Waupaca.

Waupaca was incorporated as a village on May 4, 1857 by act of the Wisconsin State Legislature. This act was repealed on April 7, 1862, but promptly revived on June 17 of the same year. Waupaca was incorporated as a city by the legislature on March 5, 1875.
