At Gene Wagner Plumbing, we are all about water supply, providing the clean water we all drink. Sometimes there’s not enough water; other times, there’s too much of it. In either case, we are here to balance it out. With our water obsession in mind, it only makes sense that we would be fascinated with National Wisconsin Day, especially as it brings attention to many of our state’s natural resources, such as our lakes.
Do you know that practically all the natural lakes in Wisconsin have resulted from glaciers? Because of the special recognition that Wisconsin receives today, we found ourselves searching for interesting facts about our state. Here are a couple of other notables about the Badger State:
Largest Inland Lake: Lake Winnebago – 30 miles long, 10 miles wide at widest point.
Deepest Inland Lake: Green Lake – 236 feet at deepest point.
Additional facts about our favorite state:
The first circus performed in the US was in Delavan, Wisconsin.
More than 800,000 deer roam Wisconsin woods.
The first ice cream sundae was assembled in Two Rivers in 1881.
Ice cream and frozen custard aren’t the only food Wisconsin loves. It’s hard to ignore the thousands of cheese lovers from this state. These are just some of the reasons Wisconsin is a great place to call home.
