Menominee gets its name from a regional Native American tribe known as the Menominee, which roughly translates into "Wild Rice". The area was originally the home of the Menominee Indian Tribe. They now have a reservation along the Wolf River in North Central Wisconsin. No native Menominee Indians are believed to be living in the city of Menominee.
Menominee gained prominence as a lumber town. In its heyday Menominee produced more lumber than any other city in America. During this time and shortly after, Menominee boasted an opera house, which is being restored. In the 1910s an early electric car, the "Dudley Bug", was manufactured in Menominee.Today, Menominee relies on manufacturing (paper products, wicker lawn furniture, auto supplies, tourism, etc.) for its economic well-being. It is the "Home Of The Lloyd Loom," a reference to wicker furniture maker Lloyd/Flanders. Menominee shares an historic rivalry with neighbor Marinette, Wisconsin. The two are noted as the oldest interstate high school rivalry in the country.

Bailey Park & West Shore Fishing Museum, M-35, Menominee, MI 49887, Phone: (906) 863-7525. Bailey Park is located approx. 15 miles north of Menominee on M-35. The West Shore Fishing Museum is located within the park's boundaries and was once the site of the Charles L. Bailey commercial fishery. The park is adjacent to the Bailey Property, once the home of a commercial fishing family. Ten years ago only the house, chicken coop and carriage shed remained, all in poor repair. Creation of the West Shore Fishing Museum began in 1997 by the Bailey Property Preservation Association. The all-volunteer Association works under the direction of Menominee County which owns the property and buildings. During the past ten years, hard work has transformed the property into a showcase museum. Restoration of the buildings and commercial fishing exhibits are 99 percent complete. Restoration of the fleet of commercial fishing boats is the Association's next project. On weekends during the summer the West Shore Fishing Museum is open to the public. Open from 1pm to 4pm, Saturday and Sunday afternoons, Memorial Day through Labor Day.
