Howard History

In 1634, the Green Bay area was first explored by Europeans. The first person to arrive in the area was Jean Nicolet, who was a French voyager. Howard was founded in 1835. The community gradually developed along Duck Creek and became a center for farming, lumbering, mail delivery and quarrying. In 1959, the community was officially incorporated as the Village of Howard. Since then, it has grown industrially, commercially and residentially. In course of time, a suburban community began to grow on the northwestern side of Green Bay. The area was named in honor of Brig. General Benjamin Howard, an officer during the war of 1812.
