Know Your Wisconsin: Ho-Chunk Beloit Casino
Air Date: 05/06/2021 -
The Ho-Chunk People have been in the area that we now call ‘Beloit’ for hundreds of years. They established the village of Ke-Chunk at the junction of Turtle Creek and the Rock River, as it was predominantly used for agricultural purposes. For the last decade, they have been working to bring a new casino, hotel, convention center, dining, and entertainment complex to the area. This new project is projected to bring with it 1,300 jobs and continued renovation to Beloit.
With Beloit’s history as an ironworking and industrial city, The Ho-Chunk Nation is working hard to incorporate local history and materials into their design, while making sure everyone is protected. The new Ho-Chunk Casino is anticipated to be completed in early 2022.
