not a misspelling of Milwaukee
, although this Milwaukie (in Oregon
), /was/ named after the Wisconsin
one, back before the current spelling
of the Wisconsin
city was officialized.
Milwaukie is the home of bing cherries, Dark Horse comics
(published Sin City
, among others), and some other stuff.
It was a very rural area around a small downtown
40 years ago, but now it's morphed into this weird semi-urban area that's impinging on the borders of Portland, OR
It is also the "Dogwood Capital of the West".
