After landing at Fort Michilimackinac in 1816, Juneau worked as a clerk in the fur trade before becoming an agent for the American Fur Company in Milwaukee, he had been summoned to the Milwaukee area by Jacques Vieau, a French-Canadian fur trader and the first permanent white settler in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. In 1818 Jacques Vieau hired Solomon Juneau, based on the accounting prowess Juneau had become known for, Juneau's reputation for being able to deal well with the local native Americans. Juneau married one of Vieau's daughters and went on to found what was to become the City of Milwaukee. Juneau settled an area east of the Milwaukee River called Juneautown in 1818, which joined with George H. Walker's Walker's Point and Byron Kilbourn's Kilbourntown to incorporate the City of Milwaukee.
In 1831, Juneau set in motion the naturalization and citizenship process. By 1835, he was selling plots of land in Juneautown, he built Milwaukee's first store and first inn, was recognized for his leadership among newcomers to Milwaukee.
