History

The county's name originated from the word Calumet, which was a ceremonial pipe used by Native Americans in councils on the east shore of Lake Winnebago.[2] Native Americans from New York State had been relocated to the southwest part of the county in the 1830s, including the Brothertown Indians, Oneida Indians, and Stockbridge Indians. Many of the early residents in the Holyland region in southern part of the county were emigrants from the Schleswig-Holstein region in Germany in the 1840s.
