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".
A: I'm from Milwaukie.
B: Oh! With the beer?
A: Well... yeah... but not the one you're thinking of, we just have some microbreweries
