Greenbay Wisconsin History
Lambeau Field is home to the Green Bay Packers, but it is also the site where legendary coach Vince Lombardi coached the great Packers team of the 1960s. In this week's issue of Northwood's Moment in History, Gary Entz looks back at the history of their training camp, which took place in the Rhineland in 1935. Elected captain after first practice, he played for the Packers in 1929 and coached them in 1949.

The GreenBay Premontre is now home to the University of Wisconsin - Madison's football team and the University of Milwaukee men's basketball team.

The speaker, Pastor Guest, was his cousin, who returned to Green Bay from Columbus, Ohio. In 1955, the NFL threatened to move the Packers to Milwaukee County Stadium unless a new stadium was built to replace City Stadium. The team played several games at County Stadium in Milwaukee, but it went on to beat the Wisconsin Badgers in the National Championship game at Madison Stadium in 1957 and the Minnesota Vikings in 1958. It was played in Madison until 1961, when they had to have a "new stadium" in GreenBay.
Unfortunately, the financial panic of 1893 thwarted the grand plan, and the Green Bay Route established itself in a regional role, surrounded by the cities of Milwaukee, Milwaukee County, Madison, and other small towns. It also led to the company filing for bankruptcy and restructuring in GreenBay and Minnesota (GB & M).
Shortly after their foundation, GBW and StP built the KGB-W, which proved vital to the Green Bay Route. On November 7, 1872, it reached the rails, and the following January regular mixed rail services began. The train rolled through the city of GreenBay en route to Milwaukee, Milwaukee County, Madison, Wisconsin. In 1873, the KGB-W was built, sailing east from Green Bay to Lake Michigan, stopping in the city of Waukesha, south of Milwaukee.
In 1655, a fur trading post was established and Green Bay became the center of a trade route that connected the Fox, Wisconsin and Mississippi rivers.

The first street, which is one of the most commonly identified "Green Bay" streets, starts at the northern end of Michigan Boulevard near the bridge and runs north-south along the east and west sides of Lake Michigan. In the 1860s, it was reported that the city's first mayor, William C. "Buck" Perrot, Jr. lived at the southern end of the diagonal, and for several years the diagonal was known as "Green Bay Road."
Although Green Bay was not in the Orient, Nicolet's rich mineral resources led him to claim the area for the King of France and to call it La Baie Verte ("Green Bay") because of its rich natural resources. The first permanent French settlers were Jean-Baptiste de la Rochefoucauld and his family, who moved to GreenBay in 1761 and became the first settlers in what has since become one of Wisconsin's most popular tourist destinations and the largest city in the state. After taking control of Green Bay in 1811, the British took control of Wisconsin in a series of raids, taking control of Green Bay in 1761 and taking control of all of Wisconsin in 1763, according to the Wisconsin Historical Society.
