green bay history 29 Town of Pittsfie Townline Rd 55 32 Kunesh Rd A Green Bay is Wisconsin's oldest city. The very first visitors to Greater Green Bay were successful entrepreneurs. From beaver pelts for European hat makers in the 1600s, to the invention of the world's first splinter-free toilet paper in the early 1900s, our ancestors used the area's 156 waterways to grow the community's prosperity.

With continuous development in Green Bay and its surrounding communities, the area boasts a progressive atmosphere from industrial parks to shopping districts.
