Historically, French explorers were the first to arrive in Green Bay. A small trading post was set up in 1634 and with this commerce Jean Nicolet encountered the Ho-Chunk (or Winnebago) Indians. Over time a village and a fort were added to the small trading post known as La Baie Verte. The "Father of Wisconsin" Charles Langlade was of the first permanent settlers to travel that far west. As English speaking people started to outnumber the French the name of the small town became Green Bay; which is a direct translation of the French La Baie Verte. These English settler warmed themselves through the snow filled winters and cooled themselves in the lake in the hot, sticky summers that Green Bay, Wisconsin is known for having.
