The Potawatomi originally named the area gnozhé ("place of the pike"). The first white settlers were part of the Western Emigration Company and arrived in the early 1830s from Hannibal and Troy, New York. As more settlers arrived and the first post office was established, the community was first known as Pike in 1836. In the ensuing years the area became an important Great Lakes shipping port, and the village was once again renamed, this time to Southport. (This is still the name of a southeast-side neighborhood, park, and elementary school, as well as several businesses). In 1850, another change brought the growing city (and later Kenosha County) its current title, an Anglicized version of the early name gnozhé.[7] Kenoshans often refer affectionately to their city as "K-Town", "K-Nowhere", "K-hole" and "Keno" (the latter often adopted over the decades on various local businesses and most notably on Kenosha's historic 1949 Keno Family Outdoor Theatre, Wisconsin's oldest drive-in theatre).[8] .

The street system in Kenosha is somewhat unusual; while numbered streets run east-west and numbered avenues run north-south as in many American cities, street numbering commences at Kenosha County's northern border (County Trunk Highway KR) rather than at the city's center.

Avenue numbers increase as one heads west from the lakefront. This numbering system continues through all of Kenosha County west ending with 408th Ave, while north-south roads end at the Illinois state line with 128th St. (Edmonton, Alberta has a similar numbering system.)
