Plymouth, originally considered a hub city because of the hub and wheel factory located here, has also earned that moniker for its central location between Milwaukee and Green Bay. Tourists flock to Plymouth year-round to visit the variety of shops, to golf, swim, and ski, or to explore the beautiful Kettle Moraine State Forest. And residents of the city are proud of their heritage, which can be seen at sites such as the Wade House, the Herrling Saw Mill, or the Wesley Jung Carriage Museum, as well as the numerous architectural gems featured on a walking tour of historic homes and businesses. First settled in 1845, it was predicted that Plymouth bids well to become quite a business town, and so it became, earning the nickname of World s Cheese Capital.
