By the end of the 19th century, Brown County had seen decades of transformations. The railroad had displaced the Fort Howard complex of military buildings, which were subsequently moved, dismantled, or demolished. Historic buildings from Green Bay’s earliest days were falling into disrepair. The history of the area, contained in the artifacts, buildings, and memories of its people, were being lost, all to the concern of local history-minded citizens. so in 1899 a group of these concerned citizens formed the Brown County Historical Society.
