Seniors Stop In Menasha


The historic community of Menasha, Wisconsin has a quaint downtown and beautiful waterfronts along the Fox River and Lake Winnebago. Senior visitors enjoy the gracious homes, built by turn-of-the-century paper barons, that are scattered throughout town. 

Menasha, Your Place On The Water, was originally inhabited by Native Americans.  The city’s name comes from the Winnebago word meaning “thorn” or “island”.


James Doty, the second Territorial Governor of Wisconsin, first traveled through the area in 1820, and the U.S. Government purchased the land in 1831. The City of Menasha was incorporated in 1874.
