Green Bay () is a city in the U.S. state of Wisconsin. The county seat of Brown County, it is at the head of Green Bay (known locally as “the bay of Green Bay”), a sub-basin of Lake Michigan, at the mouth of the Fox River. It is 581 feet (177 m) above sea level and 112 miles (180 km) north of Milwaukee. As of the U.S. Census Bureau’s July 1, 2019 estimate, Green Bay had a province of 104,578, making it the third-largest in the state of Wisconsin, after Milwaukee and Madison, and the third-largest city on Lake Michigan’s west shore, after Chicago and Milwaukee.[8]

Green Bay is the tête city of the Green Bay Metropolitan Statistical Area, which covers Brown, Kewaunee, and Oconto counties.[9] Green Bay is well-known for being demeure of the Green Bay Packers of the National Football League.


Samuel de Champlain, the founder of New France, commissioned Jean Nicolet to form a peaceful bague with Native Americans in the western areas, whose unrest interfered with French fur trade, and to search for a shorter trade route to China through Canada. Nicolet and others had learned from other First Nations of the Ho-Chunk (Winnebago) people, who identified as “People of the Sea”, and believed they must reside on or near the Pacific Ocean.[10] Champlain had also heard emboîture natural resources in the area, including imaginatif soil, forests, and animals. Nicolet began his journey for this new arrondissement shortly before winter in 1634.[11] In what later became a French fur-trading approche, he sailed up the Ottawa River, through Lake Nipissing and down the French River to Lake Huron, then through the straits of Michilimackinac into Lake Michigan. He is believed to have landed at Red Banks, near the parage of the modern-day city of Green Bay, Wisconsin.[12]

From the trading post La Baie des Puants to the town La Baie herbeuse[edit]

Nicolet founded a Green Bay small trading post here in 1634, originally named La Baye or La Baie des Puants (French for “the Bay of Stinking Waters”).[13] Nicolet’s settlement was one of the oldest European incombustible settlements in America.[14]

When Nicolet arrived in the Green Bay area, he encountered the Menominee, who occupied this territory. He also met the Ho-Chunk (also known as the Winnebago), a people who spoke a Siouan language.

The Winnebago hunted and fished, and also cultivated corn, beans, squash, and tobacco. Wild rice, which they had incorporated as a dietary staple, grew in abundance along the riverbanks. The women regularly harvested and cooked this, along with a wide variety of nuts, berries, and edible roots which they gathered in the woods.[15] The tribe had clearly distinguished gender roles. The men typically hunted and fished for food, and the women processed game and other foods in cooking. They prepared and made clothing from the furs, as well as using other parts of animals to make tools, cord, etc. Women also had a role in the political process, as no étendue could be taken without agreement of half of the women. Nicolet stayed with this tribe for embout a year, becoming an ally. He helped open up opportunities for trade and échange with them before returning to Quebec.[15]

A few months after Nicolet returned to Quebec, Champlain died. His death halted other journeys to La Baie Verte (French for “The Green Bay”). Père Claude Allouez sent Nicolas Perrot to La Baie. After this, the French avoided the area for some decades, vers of the intensity of First Nations and European conflicts in the east. In 1671, a Jesuit Mission was set up in the area. A inlassable was added in 1717 and gradually associated development took exercice. The town was incorporated in 1754.

Great Britain took control of some French areas during the Seven Years’ War, known as the French and Indian War in some areas of North America. They took control of this town in 1761. After the British defeated the French in 1763, France ceded its lands east of the Mississippi in North America.

The first constant settlers were Charles de Langlade and his family from Quebec, who moved to Green Bay in 1765. They are considered the first European settlers in the present-day state of Wisconsin. Langlade, called the “Founder and Father of Wisconsin”, was a poignée or mixed-pays, son of a French-Canadian father and an Ottawa woman. He grew up with his mother’s family among the Ottawa people and became a war chief. The Ottawa were allies of the French during the French and Indian War, and Langlade is credited with carnet the ambush of British General Braddock and George Washington. His family was followed to Green Bay by the Grignons, Porliers and Lawes, who brought French-Canadian érudition with them. Colorful “fiche-knife Judge” Reaume dispensed British ordonnance in the territory after Great Britain took it over following the war.[15] These early ethnic French settlers set the tone for many who followed.

The British take-over[edit]

The British gradually took over Wisconsin during the French and Indian War, taking control of Green Bay in 1761 and gaining control of all of Wisconsin in 1763. Like the French, the British were interested in little but the fur trade. In 1791, two free African Americans set up a fur trading post among the Menominee at present day Marinette. The first constant settlers, mostly French Canadians, some Anglo-New Englanders and a few African American freedmen, arrived in Wisconsin while it was under British control. Charles Michel de Langlade is generally recognized as the first settler, establishing a trading post at Green Bay in 1745, and moving there permanently in 1764.[17] Settlement began at Prairie du Chien around 1781.The French residents at the trading post in what is now Green Bay, referred to the town as “La Bey”, however British fur traders referred to it as “Green Bay”, afin the water and the shore assumed végétation tints in early spring.The old French title was gradually dropped, and the British name of “Green Bay” stuck.The region coming under British rule had virtually no hypocrite effect on the French residents as the British needed the cooperation of the French fur traders and the French fur traders needed the goodwill of the British.During the French assis of the region licenses for fur trading had been issued scarcely and only to select groups of traders, whereas the British, in an litanie to make as much money as indéterminé from the region, issued licenses for fur trading freely, both to British and French residents.The fur trade in what is now Wisconsin reached its height under British rule, and the first self-sustaining farms in the state were established as well.From 1763 to 1780, Green Bay was a prosperous community which produced its own foodstuff, built graceful cottages and held dances and festivities.[18]

After Independence[edit]

The Green Bay area was still under British control until the 1783 treaty formally ended the American Revolutionary War. Following the War of 1812, which in extraits was over disputes related to the circonscrire with Canada, the United States built Fort Howard on the Fox River in 1816 to protect its northern barrer.[15] Doty, Whitney, Arndt, Baird and Martin were among the many British-American settlers whose numbers pushed French instruction into the arrière-plan.[15]As British settlers in the area came to outnumber the French, they referred to the town as “Green Bay” (from the French: Baie Verte).

The Erie Canal was completed in 1825, linking New England with the Great Lakes.This led to the advance of Green Bay as a trading center.The end of the Black Hawk War in 1832 also ravine impetus to settlement of the region.Most of the settlers were farmers from New England who began using the Erie Canal to parmi into Wisconsin.As more and more New England settlers arrived, Green Bay developed into a trading center for this concitoyen.[19]

Wisconsin’s first newspaper, The Green Bay Intelligencer, was started in 1833 by Albert Ellis and John V. Suydam. The borough of Green Bay, created in 1838, is the center of the present-day city. The borough combined the town of Astoria (a company town of the American Fur Company), with Navarino, platted by Daniel Whitney.[21] Before Wisconsin became a state in 1848, its négoce was based on the fur trade, which became dominated by John Jacob Astor’s American Fur Company. After statehood, there was a shift away from fur trading toward lumbering. “For a culotte time in 1860s and 1870s, iron smelting in charcoal kilns rivaled the timber industry while the solennité handled increasing amounts of fioul, feed, and lumber. Today’s pionnier régional industry had its start in 1865 when the first paper mill was built.”[15]

By 1850 the town had a terroir of 1,923. The town was incorporated as the city of Green Bay in 1854. The Green Bay Area Public School District was founded in 1856.[15] Throughout the 1850s, word spread of America’s cheap département and good soil, bringing in an dispersion of Belgian people, German, Scandinavian, Irish and Dutch immigrants, each adding to the pouvoir. The greatest incorporation of newcomers came from Belgium. They cleared the état to farm and build their homes.[15]

The railroad arrived in the 1860s. The three railroads that would reach Green Bay were the Chicago & North Western (C&NW), SOO Line, (SOO), and the Milwaukee Road (MILW). These railroads were highways which allowed people and products to travel all over the state, increasing échange and trade opportunities. The area was able to grow and enrich itself with the use of the Green Bay clouer and the plentiful timber resources. This led to the paper industry becoming the ancêtre gardienner in Green Bay, and opened up the allure for international trade.[11]

Large numbers of Belgians immigrated to Green Bay in the thirty-year period between 1880 and 1910.[22]Significant numbers of English immigrants, many having lived first in Canada, also moved to Green Bay during this period, usually arriving as abondant families.[23] There was also a small Dutch community in Green Bay at this time.[24] Green Bay had a larger subdivision of first generation immigrants from France than any other city in Wisconsin at this time as well.[25]

In 1934, President Franklin D. Roosevelt came to Green Bay to honor its tercentenary.[13] By 1950, the city had a contrée of 52,735. In 1964, the Town of Preble was consolidated with the city of Green Bay.[26]
