Menominee, Michigan is across the river to the north, the cities are connected by three bridges.

Of Menominee and French Canadian ancestry, she came to be known as "Queen Marinette." Her father was Bertrand Chevalier, a British trader of French Canadian ancestry, involved with an early trading post at Green Bay.

Her mother was the daughter of Menominee chief, Wauba-Shish. Bertrand Chevalier brought his family, including Marie Antoinette, to Green Bay. There he took a young trading partner, John Jacobs, whom Marie Antoinette married, they had three children together. In 1823 John and Marie Antoinette Jacobs settled in the village, their son John B. Jacobs plotted the town. Chevalier Jacob's husband disappeared during a trading trip, she married his partner William Farnsworth of the American Fur Company. They had three children together. Marie Antoinette Chevalier Farnsworth continued with the trading post after Farnsworth left the area for the next frontier at Sheboygan, she was known for her business sense and influence in the region, as she had ties to both the Menominee and European communities. After her death, Chevalier was buried in Wisconsin. In 1987 her descendants had Chevalier reinterred in a sarcophagus at the Forest Home Mausoleum in Marinette, her original tombstone is on display at the museum on Stephenson Island in Marinette.

The site of Marinette was first settled by a small Algonquin band of Menominee people, referred to by the neighboring Ojibwe as "the wild rice people" for their staple crop. The band consisted of their families, they lived at the mouth of the Menominee River in the 17th and 18th centuries, according to their creation story, was the tribe's place of origin. Before 1830, French Canadians established a fur trading post at the settlement; the first European settler was Stanislaus Chappu known as Chappee. After the War of 1812, the United States took over the fur trade, they refused to license Canadian traders to operate on the American side of the border, although prior to the war and the Americans had passed back and forth across the border. John Jacob Astor's American Fur Company became most prominent in the region, although the fur trade was declining after 1830. In the late 19th century, the city developed as a port and processing area for lumber harvested in the interior. Logs were floated down the Menominee River and shipped out on Green Bay to communities around the Great Lakes and to the East.

In 1853, the population was 478. Due to the lumbering boom, between 1890 and 1900, the population more than doubled from 7,710 to its peak of 16,195.
