Long Description:
From Wikipedia (visit link)

Zilwaukee was founded in 1848 when Daniel and Solomon Johnson two brothers from New York City, built a saw mill here. Officially organized ten years later, the Johnsons gave the name Zilwaukee to the town purposely to cause people to confuse it with the city of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, in hopes of luring immigrants there to work.
