Wisconsin was first settled by the French near Green Bay in the mid-1600s. Great Britain obtained the area during the close of the French and Indian Wars in 1763, and the US took control of it immediately following the Revolutionary War. Wisconsin officially became part of the Union in 1848 as the 30th state. It is a leading state in milk and cheese production. Other important agricultural products are peas, beans, corn, and potatoes. Wisconsin also is first in paper production, and some of its key industrial products include automobiles, furniture, machinery, beer, and processed foods. Wisconsin is a national leader in social legislation, providing pensions to the blind, aid to dependent children, and old age assistance. The state is a good place for small business owners starting out or looking to expand to an area with a healthy economy and a strong manufacturing industry.
