I thought I would share some stats for the different villages and towns located in or around Green Bay, WI. Knowing a little bit about the neighborhood can certainly help you make real estate decisions and choose a location for your new home. Out of all the wonderful places in Green Bay, I chose to write about Allouez first. Here’s the breakdown of this great village:
A Little Allouez History
Ever wondered where the name Allouez came from? Or perhaps you are from out of town and have no idea how the locals pronounce it (al – ah – way). Pere Claude Allouez was a French Catholic missionary who arrived in the area in 1671. The first European settlers in the Green Bay area actually claimed the area as French territory. In the year of 1856 the Town of Bellevue was established and by 1874 the Town of Allouez separated from the Town of Bellevue. The first large scale industrial activities were brewing and shipbuilding. Residential settlement of the Allouez area continued to increase. In 1985 the Town of Allouez became the village of Allouez. For a more detailed history of the area please contact the Brown County Historical Society. In 2006 Allouez built a new municipal building on Libal Street. Visit the Village’s website to learn about the Allouez community and services.

The East River Trail is groomed for cross country skiing during the winter months. In addition to the East River Trail, there is also the scenic Fox River Trail which passes through Allouez.
