Legend has it that in 1634, just 14 years after the Pilgrim’s landing at Plymouth Rock, Jean Nicolet became the first white man to step onto the shores of Green Bay, claiming this territory for “civilized” France.

However, with its beauty and rich resources, Green Bay had already been inhabited by complex cultures for many centuries. And through peace and war, this cultural invasion has continued for over 370 years, creating the exciting, diverse and historic community that is the destination of the FRIENDS of the Wisconsin Historical Society 2010 Connections in Time and Place bus tour.
