Profile of the Green Bay city

Brief History

Green Bay is known as being an industrial city with a lot of meatpacking and paper plants. It is one of the oldest permanent settlements in America, first settled by French settlers in the 1690s. The first permanent French settler in the area was Charles de Langlade. He moved to Green Bay in 1765 and he and his family were the first permanent settlers in modern day Wisconsin – he is known as the “founder and father of Wisconsin.”

Interresting Facts

One interesting fact about Green Bay is that it was still under British control after America had gained independence in the Revolutionary War. It became an official part of the United States in 1783 and Wisconsin became a state in 1848. Before becoming a state, the major commerce in Wisconsin was fur trading, but after it became a state, the most important economic branch because the timber industry.

The first newspaper in Wisconsin was also founded in Green Bay. The Green Bay Intelligencer was first published in 1833. It was mostly populated by settlers of French descent until 1850, after which there was an influx of Belgian, German, Scandinavian, Irish and Dutch immigrants as word spread of the cheap land and good soil that could be found in America. The largest number of immigrants ended up coming from Belgium.

Greater progress came with the arrival of the railroad in 1860, which enabled people and products to travel faster from state to state and increased business and trade opportunities for the region.

Green Bay NFL Team

Today, the Green Bay Packers of the NFL are far and wide what the city is most known for in general. Even though the metropolitan area of Green Bay was a lot smaller than most other cities that had a professional team, Green Bay always enjoyed a very strong following of loyal fans and the franchise had great success, especially in the early years of the NFL. The Packers still have more NFL championships than any other team in the league. Their total of 13 championships has given Green Bay the nickname of “Titletown, USA.”

Transportation

Public transportation is not that popular in Green Bay – a majority of the population gets around by car. It is however a central stop in that region of the country for trains and is a vital part of the Midwest’s railroad system.

Large Employers

Some of Green Bay’s largest employers include the companies Humana, Schneider National, Oneida Nation of Wisconsin and the Green Bay Area Public School District.
