History

Before the arrival of French explorers, the Green Bay area was inhabited by indigenous tribes such as the Ojibwa, Menominee, Fox, and Winnebago. The Winnebego, identified as People of the Sea, primarily lived near water bodies, particularly the Pacific Ocean. They occupied the area now known as Green Bay for a very long time quite independently until the arrival of French explorer Jean Nicolet in 1634. Part of Nicolet's task, as commissioned by colonialist Samuel de Champlain, was to collaborate with the native Americans in order to make the fur trade much easier. Nicolet was also supposed to find a shorter trade route to China. When he arrived here, he called this place "the bay of stinking waters." He founded a fur trading post and befriended the indigenous people by supplying them with weapons and clothes. A Jesuit mission came up in 1671, and a fort was built in 1677. These and other facilities led to gradual developments of the town, and it was incorporated in 1754. The British took over control of the Green Bay area in 1761 and took over the entire Wisconsin in 1763. Their main interest was the fur trade, but other enterprises such as lumber milling and papermaking were fast-rising. The paper mill industry was particularly supportive of the city during the great depression. The formation of the Green Bay Packers in 1919 breathed new life into the socio-economic aspects of the city. The team was named after the Indian Packing Company, which sponsored them until 1921. Papermaking and meatpacking are still essential industries in Green Bay city. To continue preserving the city's heritage, Green Bay Historic Preservation Commission has an annual program where it identifies and marks buildings with a plaque. Buildings are classified into four categories such as "contributes to Green Bay's identity in a unique way," "endangered historic property," "significant socially or architecturally," and "a hidden element of Green Bay's history."
