Zilwaukee is a city in Saginaw County in the U.S. state of Michigan. The 2010 Census places the population at 1,658. The city is adjacent to and was created from Zilwaukee Township. It is the home of the Zilwaukee Bridge.
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 settlers there to work. Zilwaukee is the hometown of former major league baseball player Al Luplow.
