Historic Preservation Watch List
Aldo Leopold School, Green Bay
SAVED-The original St. Joseph's Academy high school building in Green Bay has since been surrounded by a 1960s wing to the east and a 1970s gymnasium to the southwest. More recent construction started with a modern Phase 1 addition to the south. Phase 2 plans call for demolition of the original building to make room for more new construction on the crowded site.

Brown County Historical Society’s “If Tombstones Could Talk” 2019 season begins at Fort Howard Memorial Park. The theme for the season is “Triumph & Tragedy” and the characters visitors will meet represent a wide range of time-periods and difference stances.
