Relocation Information

Marinette, Wis., and Menominee, Mich., are "twin" cities located at the mouth of the Menominee River. Both cities grew during the late 19th century when lumber mills dotted the shoreline and thousands of lumberjacks found work in the camps to the north.

Today the cities, along with nearby Peshtigo, Wis., form a tri city area. While each city retains its own identity, people often live in one and work in another.

Work Life

The Marinette-Menominee area is home to a variety of businesses that manufacture ships, auto parts, helicopters, airplane seats, paper products, fire extinguishers and much more. Our companies range from sprawling plants owned by large corporations to small, privately-held businesses. We are a regional health-care center, and we are home to a two-year campus of the University of Wisconsin System and of Northeast Wisconsin Technical College. Our schools and businesses work together with the Marinette Menominee Area Chamber of Commerce to build a stronger community and a healthy business climate.

Home Life

Life in the Marinette Menominee area offers you a choice between charming older neighborhoods and newer subdivisions, downtown apartments and bayside condominiums. You can enjoy life in a tidy ranch, a cozy Craftsman bungalow, or a larger family home. We have many stunning Victorian homes, too, often on tree-lined streets with shoreline views. Housing costs in our area are still within reach.

Our neighborhoods are safe and friendly; people still sit on their porches here and take walks on summer evenings. Move in and you are likely to find the neighbors will quickly come over to introduce themselves. Most neighborhoods include at least one park.
