Term: Heritage Hill State Park (Historic Marker Erected 1977)


2640 S. Webster Ave., Green Bay, Brown County

This park, built to portray and preserve Wisconsin's beginnings, is located on a site that is itself a part of history. On this 40 acre site stood Camp Smith -- a temporary location of Fort Howard -- part of the pioneer settlement known as Shantytown, and Wisconsin's first courthouse. Through this site passed the military road linking Fort Howard with Fort Winnebago at Portage and Fort Crawford at Prairie du Chien. Many of the buildings at Heritage Hill are original structures that were saved over the years by people of foresight and perseverance. Among these buildings are Henry Baird's law office, several original Fort Howard buildings, the Cotton House, a French fur trader's cabin, and the Tank cottage-Wisconsin's oldest standing house dating from 1776. The spread of civilization in Wisconsin was begun by the people who first made their homes here on the banks of the Fox River.
