Tomah is a city in Monroe County, Wisconsin, United States. The population was 9,093 as of the 2010 census. The city is surrounded by the Town of Tomah and the Town of La Grange. Much of the city's commercial, retail, and residential development over the last 40 years has occurred in the northern half of the city at a substantial distance from the city's downtown.HistoryTomah was founded by Robert E. Gillett in 1855 and incorporated as a city in 1883 but the charter was not issued until 1894. Tomah is named after Thomas Carron (ca. 1752–1817), a trader at Green Bay who had integrated into the Menominee tribe. The Menominees pronounced the name Tomah or Tomau and he became known as Chief Tomah. Tomah was adopted as the name for the settlement in Monroe County on the unsubstantiated belief that Chief Tomah had once held a tribal gathering in the area.Tomah has two landmarks on the National Register of Historic Places: the old Tomah Post Office at 903 Superior Avenue and the Tomah Public Library at 716 Superior Avenue.GeographyTomah is located on the South Fork of the Lemonweir River, a main tributary of the Lemonweir River, which is a large tributary of the lower Wisconsin River. The river is impounded on the west side of the city, forming Lake Tomah. Council Creek flows north through the east side of the city to meet the river.
