Green Bay’s identity is closely tied to its professional football team, whose roots spread across the community. The Packers Heritage Trail is a self-guided walking tour that tells stories of the people and places that have played an important role in Packers history.
The Packers Heritage Trail consists of 22 commemorative bronze plaques. The trailhead is located at the front entrance of the Neville Public Museum. On the journey, you can see Curly Lambeau’s childhood home, as well as the birthplace of the Packers. Visit the train depot that sent off the team for road games. Stop at City Stadium, where the Packers played home games from 1925 to 1956. You will also see the hotel that Vince Lombardi held his first press conference as Head Coach, and the church where he attended daily mass.
Seventeen of the plaques are part of a City Walk, while five others are located on two separate spurs. Trail maps are available at the Neville Public Museum.
The Packers Heritage Trail is designed and supported by The Packers Heritage Trail Foundation. The foundation is a non-profit public charity founded by Cliff and Shirley Christl. For more information, visit the Packers Heritage Trail website, www.packersheritagetrail.com.
