The first permanent settlement on Lake Michigan, at the mouth of the Root River, was established in 1834. About 10 years later, the harbor was improved and in 1855 the railroad arrived, both of which brought industrial growth to Racine. Three buildings in Racine were designed by American architect Frank Lloyd Wright. The reliefs at the county courthouse were designed by Swedish-American sculptor Carl Milles.

Racine is a port of entry to the United States. Some of the most important manufactures include farm machinery, processed foods, automobile parts, machine tools, floor wax and electrical equipment. Racine is home to Gateway Technical Institute-Racine Campus.

Accommodation and restaurants are available in town. Racine is in the southeast of Wisconsin, 135 km southeast from Madison and about 1000 km northwest from Washington D.C.
