Minocqua is a town in northwestern Oneida County, Wisconsin, United States. The population was 4,385 after taken in the 2010 census. The census was done over Minocqua and the unincorporated community of Rantz, both which are located in the town. Minocqua is commonly referred to as "The Island City."HistoryMinocqua was officially organized in the year 1889. While there are varying explanations regarding the meaning of the word "Minocqua", most credit its origin to the Island's first inhabitants, the Ojibwe Indians. The town Minocqua is named after, "Ninocqua", the Ojibwe name that is defined as "noon-day-rest". The American Ojibwe tribe is thought to be one of the largest groups of Indians, and currently in Canada, there are 125 bands of Ojibwe Indians. The tribe originally relied on grains such as rice and eating fish they retrieved from spear fishing to survive. The Ojibwe Indians are known for fur trading and the struggle they faced with fur trading decreased in popularity. They used birch bark to build shelters because it was easily moved and suitable for most conditions and environments. Thanks to their isolation from other towns and groups of Indians, the Ojibwe traditions were saved and the tribes were never forced to leave their land like most Indians. The Ojibwe customs are still taught, widely practiced, and well known today.In the late 1800s, Minocqua was a logging town. Minocqua Clawson was the first white child born in town. Clawson Hill was a famous landmark in town, and it is now the current location of the Pointe Resort & Hotel at the south end of the Highway 51 bridge.
