Winnebago is an unincorporated community in the Town of Oshkosh in Winnebago County, Wisconsin, United States.[1][2] It is located just outside the northeast edge of the city of Oshkosh.[3] The Winnebago Mental Health Institute is located in Winnebago.[4] The ZIP code is: 54985.[5] U.S. Route 45 ran through the community until the road's route was moved west; the former route is now occupied by County Highway A.

2017 water issues[edit]

The community residents began receiving water and sewer utilities from the Winnebago Health Institute in the 1940s.[6] In April 2017, 24 community residents received a letter from the state of Wisconsin stating that it will be shutting off their water and sewer on August 1, 2017.[6] The institute receives water from the City of Oshkosh which annexed the institute in 1998; the institute had sent letters to the town and city asking for them to come up with a solution.[6]
