More About
Tomah, WI

About TomahTomah is the crossroads for west-central Wisconsin, midway between Minnesota's Twin Cities and Milwaukee, and is where I-90/I-94 separates into two distinct highways. In the spring of 1856, Robert E. Gillett and his son, Robert A. Gillett, began planning the city they were to lay out on this site. Legend had it that years before the great Indian Chief Tomah had built a council house near the creek, and the Menomonee and the Winnebago had met there in peace. The Gilletts decided to name the town after this man of strong character and high ideals.

Frank King, the creator of the innovative “Gasoline Alley” cartoon strip grew up in Tomah but later moved to the Chicago area to work for the Chicago Tribune. First published in 1919, “Gasoline Alley” characters and locales were drawn from King's youth in Tomah and reflected life in a small American town. The most notable innovation was that the characters aged over the life of the strip.
