not a misspelling of Milwaukee, Wisconsin
, 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".
