There seems to be some variations on how or why Plymouth is known as “Hub City.” One reason is because of its central between Milwaukee, Sheboygan, Fond du Lac, and Green Bay. The other reason is the nickname “Hub City” began in the 1860’s when the Schwartz brothers had a wagon shop where they made wagons, hubs, and spokes, but were well known for their hubs.
