While most of Mequon is more rural, Theinsville has worked as a city with a population of about 3,000 and an annual income of $1.5 million. This growth has been overshadowed by the fact that communities like Thiensville and Milwaukee have tried to annex land from the city to Meqon, as happened in 1956.
With the construction of Interstate 43, the city has grown and continues to make travel to Milwaukee easier. The Mequon - Milwaukee Railway, a shuttle train service between Milwaukee and Milwaukee, operated from Meqon until the late 1950s and early 1960s. This train was in service until the Second World War, when it was decommissioned after the Second World War.
Much of the community remains rural, although Thiensville has become a market town, providing services to farmers, thanks to the local railroad.
O'Brien's Farmstead, in rural northwest Mequon, was founded in 1846 and dates back to 1850, with his first farmstead built in the late 18th century. It is registered in the National Register of Historic Places and still stands as a community. Thiensville grew after the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul Railways were built in the early 1870s. The Milwaukee Interurban Line built a bridge over Milwaukee Road and tracks in the west of the city, with a station at the intersection of Milwaukee Street and the railroad tracks.
The Mequon area was inhabited by the Menominee, Potawatomi and Sauk when the first white settlers arrived in the 1830s. At the beginning of the 19th century, they had a village, today Thiensville, north of Freistädter Straße am Taubenbach. Before the white settlers arrived in the area, it was a highland forest dominated by American beech and maple trees.
German immigrants settled in the community and built farms and hydroelectric power plants along the Milwaukee River. One of the first settlers was John Weston, who settled near what is now Thiensville in 1837 and served as the first postmaster of the town of Mequon. A year later, a group of American workers was deployed to build a dam and canal.
The Route 143 commuter bus, also known as the Ozaukee County Express, travels from Milwaukee on Interstate 43 and Exits 85 and 89 provide community access from Interstate 94 and Interstate 90, respectively.
Although Mequon is a city, much of the country remains rural; about half of its land is undeveloped, and agriculture plays a significant role in the local economy. However, it is connected to Interstate 94 and Interstate 90 and the Ozaukee County Express and runs north and south of the city. Although the city is an integrated city with nearby towns and villages, it does not have its own police or fire brigade, nor does it own or control public schools.
As land development continues to reduce the amount of wild land, wildlife is forced to live close to people and the community of Mequon.
Among other Christian denominations, Mequon is the northernmost suburb of Milwaukee, which has a sizable Jewish community. It is also home to a large number of members of the Lutheran Church in America and the United Methodist Church. In 2015, several businesses located just off Interstate 43 were among the largest employers in Ozaukee County. These include: General Electric, General Motors and Herbert Hoover, Inc., as well as several other large corporations.
