Several bridges across the Fox River connect Menasha with Neenah, with which it really forms one community industrially.
NEENAH, a city of Winnebago county, Wisconsin, U.S.A., on the N.W.
Doty Island, at the mouth of the river, belongs partly to Neenah and partly to Menasha.
Neenah is a trade centre of the surrounding agricultural region, in which dairying, especially cheese-making, is carried on extensively.
There was a trading post at or near the site of Neenah during the French regime in Wisconsin, but there was no actual settlement until well into the 19th century.
Neenah was chartered as a city in 1873; its name is derived from an Indian word meaning "running water" or "rapids."
