About Cudahy, Wisconsin Real Estate
Life On the Blue Shore
Welcome to Cudahy, Wisconsin!
Welcome to Cudahy, Wisconsin, known for generations of pride. From beautiful lakeshore parks to long-standing businesses and a historically-intact downtown, Cudahy has a small town feel with a big city appeal.
Cudahy is a city in Milwaukee County, Wisconsin, United States. The population was 18,429 at the 2000 census.
Originally known as the Buckhorn Settlement, it was renamed in the late 1800s when Patrick Cudahy purchased 700 acres of land in the Town of Lake, two miles from the Milwaukee city limits, to build his meatpacking plant. The first village president was elected in 1895, and by 1906 Cudahy was incorporated as a city with a population of 2,556.
Cudahy is named after its founder, Patrick Cudahy, who bought 700 acres of land in the 1890s and built the Cudahy Brothers meat packing plant with his brother John in 1892. Today, the city is served by a mayor, five alderpersons and other elected and appointed officials who strive to maintain Cudahy's small community charm with the superior services and amenities of a large urban area.
According to local lore, Patrick Cudahy selected the site for his packing plant on the highest point between Milwaukee and Chicago. Trains probably already served Buckhorn Station (the original name of our city) and the depot was built along the Chicago and Northwestern Rail Road right-of-way to bring the many workers the plant would need.
The depot has a large, unheated freight storage area on the north end. This area is literally filled to the rafters with antiques and other wonderful items on display. The remainder of the building is divided into a waiting room, ticket selling area and an office that most likely held a telegraph operator as well. These areas house interesting photos, banners, artifacts and even a roll top desk used by Patrick Cudahy! It’s interesting to note that the Cudahy Depot is not unique, in that the plans used for its construction were also used by other railroads across the US. However, according to members of a railroad history club that met there a few years ago, the Cudahy building is one of the few still remaining and, because of its restoration and constant upkeep, is also among the finest of its kind.
Today, Cudahy, Wisconsin is home to more than 18,000 residents and nearly 8,000 households. The median income for a household in the city was $40,157, and the median income for a family was $49,082.
