Wee-Ma-Tuk Hills is located on land once mined by the Traux-Traer Coal Company – now a division of Consolidation Coal Company – which operated in Minnesota and Saskatchewan, as well as several Illinois counties. Company head, Harold Traux, apparently selected Fulton County as his home. It was his son, Glenn, whose land became the Wee-Ma-Tuk Country Club in 1956.

Over the next decade, Putt Creek was dammed to create Lake Wee-Ma-Tuk. The numerous small lakes – once strip mines – filled in with rainfall. The land around the lakes was divided into lots. Wee-Ma-Tuk translates into Land of Many Lakes. Glenn Traux’s wife, Margie, names the streets after Native American literary references and tribes.
