Green Bay, WI, began as the oldest permanent settlement by Europeans in what is now the United States. Created as a trading post in 1634, the city was incorporated in 1754 and has grown into the third-largest city in Wisconsin, with a 2010 population of 104,057.
As part of the larger Green Bay Metropolitan Statistical Area, it contributes to a population of more than 500,000.
Today, instead of being known for its origins as a trading post, Green Bay is more famous as being the home of the NFL team the Green Bay Packers. Because the city resides along the Green Bay of Lake Michigan (from whence it gets its name), the city is known for its port.
However, Green Bay is also known as the “Toilet Paper Capital of the World,” thanks to its prolific paper industry, and it is also known for its meatpacking industries. The city’s culture includes summer festivals, live entertainment, museums, and more.
