  • Menominee gets its name from a regional Native American tribe known as the Menominee, which roughly translates into "Wild Rice People". 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 http://www.menomineeoperahouse.org/. Today, Menominee relies on manufacturing (paper products, lawn furniture, auto supplies, tourism, etc.) for its economic well-being. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Menominee%2C_Michigan
