As the brainchild of journalist Cliff Christl, the trail is a self-guided tour where visitors will have the chance to visit the birthplace of Curly Lambeau, Vince Lombardi’s church, the Green Bay Press Gazette and a plethora of other historic places in and around downtown of Green Bay.
With a completion date of mid-June, the tour will include a number of historic markers that will be situated in strategic spots along the walking tour – and it all comes just in time for those who will be making their annual pilgrimage to Green Bay during the summer months, especially during training camp.
The announcement of the completion date of the trail was made today when Cristl was joined by supporters at Neville Public Museum of Brown County to announce the scheduled completion of a project he has been planning since 2009.
Even Packers president Mark Murphy was in attendance at the announcement where he was reported in the Green Bay Press Gazette as saying, “This really adds something. And we’re really excited about it.”
