The Fox Cities are also known as “Paper Valley,” since the paper industry made its way there in the mid 1800’s due to the area’s “proximity to water power, transportation routes, and rich reserves of northern Wisconsin forests” (Wisconsin Historical Society.) The town of Kimberly, adjacent to Appleton and ranked the 11th Best School District in Wisconsin, was named after John A. Kimberly, one of the founders of the Kimberly-Clark Corporation, which still has operations in the area today.
