Packers Heritage Trail
The culture and history of Green Bay can be closely tied with its NFL team, the Packers. In celebration of this identity, the Packers Heritage Trail City Walk was designed throughout the city to mark historical locations that played an important role in the creation of the Green Bay Packers and the people who were responsible.
The self-guided walking tour consists of 22 commemorative bronze plaques. Explorers of the trail will see Curly Lambeau’s childhood home, stand at the birthplace of the Packers, visit the train depot that sent off the team for road games, and walk around City Stadium, the home of the Packers from 1925 – 1956.
Less than a 3-mile walk in downtown Green Bay, the Packers Heritage Trail City begins at the front entrance to the Neville Public Museum. Be sure to get a trail map from the museum as there are no directions on the trail to the next stop. (You can see a digital version of the trail map here). Each plaque tells an important story of the humble beginnings of the Green Bay Packers all the way to one of the most popular teams in all of American sports. History buffs and football fans alike will enjoy this attraction.
For those who would prefer not to walk the trail, check out the Packers Heritage Trail Trolley Tours schedule or you can Segway the trail.
