Overview Looking Northeast

The history of the City of Green Bay, Brown County, and the Green Bay Packers are inextricably linked. The fledgling team first practiced on the grounds of the old courthouse and many contentious meetings of the citizens of Green Bay were held here to determine the fate of their beloved football team.

The courthouse is one stop on the "Packers Heritage Trail" which is a walking tour of Green Bay that features sites important to the history of the most storied franchise in the National Football League.
