This historic map of Green Bay, Wisconsin was created in 1867 by Albert Ruger, a prominent 19th century map maker. The map shows a bird’s eye view of the area as it once was, including street names and old landmarks.
Landmarks on the map include the Chicago and North Western Railroad Depot, Turners Hall, Bay City House, Fox River Hotel, Green Bay House, remains of the old military fort, numerous churches, and more.
The original map was sepia toned, as seen here in the version held by the Library of Congress. KNOWOL’s version of the map has been restored and colorized. Reproductions of the restored map are available here.
