Green Bay is located on the eastern side of the state of Wisconsin, and the seat of Brown County, Green Bay, is situated in the Fox River, which empties into Green Bay, an inlet of Lake Michigan. The fur trading post was established by 1655, and Green Bay became the entrance to the trade route that connects the Fox, Wisconsin, and Mississippi rivers. The city was taken over by the British from the French-Canadian settlers and took control of the economy that was established. After the war in 1982, the United States took possession of the industry and built Fort Howard within the present limits of Green Bay. And with the decline of the fur trade industry, Green Bay developed the agriculture and lumbering industry and eventually became a center for the two sectors in the region.
