Kaukauna, Wisconsin is in Outagamie County on the Fox River, approximately 100 miles north of Milwaukee. It is a part of the Appleton, Wisconsin Metropolitan Statistical Area. It is considered the easternmost of the Fox Cities. Prior to 1880, and shortly afterwards, Kaukauna was known as "The Lion on the Fox." This nickname was changed to "The Electric City" upon the completion of the hydroelectric plant there. The city was incorporated in 1885. The first land deed in Wisconsin was given to Charles A. Grignon, who built a mansion on the river on Kaukauna's north side. The home, which bears Grignon's name, is operated as a museum by the Outagamie County Historical Society. The high school's mascot is the Galloping Ghost, supposedly named after a football game in the early days of the school. On a foggy night, the announcer was heard to describe the running back as a Galloping Ghost - possibly a reference to Red Grange, a professional football player whose nickname was The Galloping Ghost. As of the 2000 Census, there were 12,983 people living in Kaukauna. The average high and low temperatures in July are 81 and 62 degrees; the average high and low temperatures in January are 24 and 8 degrees.
