The state of Wisconsin was first inhabited by a group of people called the Paleo-Indians during the Ice Age period starting around 10,000 BC. Through the later Archaic and Woodland periods, the locals developed the Effigy Mound, Mississippian, and Oneta cultures. From these indigenous groups came the contemporary Native American Tribes of the Ioway, Ho-Chunk, Menominee, Ojibwa, Sauk, Fox, Kickapoo, and Pottawatomie.
Before the British eventually took control of the region following the French and Indian War in 1763, the French had already begun establishing settlements in the area as they traded fur with the local tribes. Jean Nicolette, a French explorer, was the first European ever to set foot in the state in the early 17th century. Jacques Marquette, the French explorer, was the first European to reach Wisconsin River in 1673 and called it Meskousing River according to his Journal records. The subsequent writers later named it Ouisconsin, a word from the Algonquians, Native American peoples that used to inhabit the region, and over time it also became the name of the surrounding lands too. When the Britons arrived in the area, however, they anglicized the name from Ouisconsin to Wisconsin.
Shortly after the American Revolutionary War, this land was loosely considered a US territorial possession, but full control of the area didn’t happen until Britain also lost the War of 1812 to America and Congress made it an official US territory on April 20, 1836. As a territory, the main economic activity of the area changed from the trading of furs to the mining of the abundant lead in the area. After this period, the area experienced an influx of Europeans and rapidly grew in population prompting its declaration as the 30th state of the USA on May 29, 1848.
By 1950, the population of the state had risen ten times over to about 300 000. This boom was mainly because of the continued opportunities resulting from the many lead mines in the area. Since the miners usually took shelter in the same holes that they dug, the locals referred to them as badgers, which is from where the state’s nickname 'The Badger State’ came. Nowadays, with close to 6 million Wisconsinites calling it home, it now ranks as the 20th most populous US state. It has an area of about 65,498 square miles, making it the 23rd largest state in the US. Rooted in the optimistic nature of people here, they adopted the state motto of 'Forward' in 1951’.
This state is located between the Mississippi River and Great Lakes Region in the north central part of the USA. It is bordered by Lake Michigan, Iowa, Minnesota, Lake Superior and Illinois. The Badgers State’s geography is dived into five main zones. In the Northern part of the state, you have the Lake Superior Lowland along Lake Superior. To the south of that, there is the Northern Highland with coniferous forests, hardwoods, and the state’s 1.5 million-acre Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest. The North is also known for its numerous glacial lakes, ridges, and Timms Hill, which is the highest point in the state. In the middle of the state, you will find the Central plain region with exquisite sandstone formations such as the Dells of the Wisconsin River. In the Southeast, you will find the Eastern Lowlands and Ridges including the Black River Escarpment, Magnesian Escarpment, and Niagara Escarpment. Lastly, in the Southwest, you will find the rugged Western Upland, which includes farmland, forests, bluffs, and the Mississippi River.
Official records number the lakes in the state at 16,692 and the rivers and streams at 7000. In fact, if stretched end to end, the rivers and streams would create an approximately 27,000 mile long waterway that which would easily circle the planet along the equator with even nearly two thousands of miles to spare. The state government has also set up some water parks which have boosted the tourism sector making water recreation a major tourist attraction in the state.
The climate here is also diverse due to the varied geographical features that influence its climatic conditions. The southern part of the state has a humid continental climate with hot summers and cold winters. The northern part, however, has warmer summers and much colder winters than the other parts.

The Badger State proudly has several successful professional sports teams. For instance, it is home to the MLB MKE Brewers. It’s also home to the NBA’s Milwaukee Bucks which wasted no time in winning its first NBA Championship early in their franchise history way back in 1971. The legendary NFL GB Packers, which was established back in 1921 have won more titles in the National Football League than any other team that ever participated in the league earning that city the ‘Titletown USA’ nickname.

When buying or selling a house here, the real estate closing agent will typically use a Warranty Deed to convey the title of the property to the new owner. For the deed to be legally valid, the document must include the property’s exact legal description, which usually comes from language within the property’s original survey. This state primarily follows the Public Land Survey System (PLSS) methodology when surveying the properties. The initial starting point for their PLSS is the Fourth Principal Extended Meridian which lies on the west bank of the Illinois River in Illinois. Because Wisc. used to be part of the French Louisiana Territory, the other surveying method used here is based on the old French “long lots” survey system.
If you aren’t paying cash for the home and are instead getting a loan to buy the real estate, then understand that this is primarily a lien theory state. This simply means that the raw title of the property will remain as collateral until the lien is ultimately paid off. The most common document that is used here to secure the lender’s interest in the title is called a Mortgage.
If for some reason the borrower cannot repay the home loan, then the lender must go to court and start a judicial foreclosure which typically takes about 365 days to complete so long as it remains uncontested. During this process, the mortgage company’s attorney will also typically file a lis pendens against the property so that the public is made aware of the pending foreclosure. Once the judge rules in favor of the mortgage company, then the court will issue a final judgment of foreclosure and the property will either revert back to the bank or will be awarded to the highest bidder at the foreclosure auction. The laws that pertain to the Wis. foreclosure process are mostly found in WI Statutes and Annotations Chapter 708.01 et. seq..
However, if you are a landlord that needs to evict a non-paying tenant, then you would need to reference the statutes of Chapter 704 instead. Whereas if you are looking to become a real estate agent, then you would just deal directly with the WI Real Estate Examining Board, which oversees all the licensing of the agents and most of the implementation and enforcement of the Wisconsin real estate licensing laws. Amongst other things, the main requirements to get a real estate license here would be to be at least 18 years old, complete at least 72 hours of approved WI real estate courses, successfully pass the written state exam, pass some criminal background checks, and pay the various required licensing fee.
