Green Bay's West Side: The Fort Howard Neighborhood (WI) (Images of America)
A prominent borough for many years, Fort Howard occupied the area immediately west of the mouth of the Fox River in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Named after the military garrison that once stood there, Fort Howard-once Green Bay's fierce rival-was incorporated into the City of Green Bay in 1895. Today, the neighborhood is a seamless extension of the city, blending burgeoning commerce with historic homes. This collection of vintage photographs highlights stories of the people and businesses that have made this area unique, from philanthropic businessmen to the bustling Broadway District.
