Green Bay Surround Homes for Sale and Real Estate

Area Description

Each small community in Wisconsin was founded by a unique set of people who brought something special to our state. Sometimes over the years of development in a large urban setting the quirky, individual stories get lost and watered down. Small communities know how to hang on to their heritage with oral history and wonderful festival celebrations. They have high school mascots and murals and fun events. Be a part of it!

Around the Area

In The Green Bay Surrounding Area there are many exciting opportunities for enjoying live entertainment of all types.  Ashwaubenon is home to Lambeau Field (Home of the NFL’s Green Bay Packers), The Resch Center, The Brown County Veterans Memorial Arena, and Shopko Hall. Beyond these major performance venues, there are countless alternative stages across the area where local performers find support in an active arts community.

DePere, with a population of 23,800 has a plan for sustainability and beautification…taking responsibility for the river that their history was built on. With diverse city planning, mindful development has produced riverfront condos, senior apartments, modern subdivisions and an historic district. Currently, 96% of surveyed adults say life there is either good or excellent. DePere is also home to St. Norbert College.

The town of Wrightstown started with a limestone quarry in the early 1800’s. The current population is 2,827. Many descendants of the original settlers still live in town. The original farmland is now dotted with several small subdivisions.

Freedom has a population of 5,942 and is located halfway between Appleton and Green Bay on State Highway 55. Freedom has four wonderful parks and there are two privately run golf courses available in the community. They have an active historical society.

From Seymour, where they celebrate being the home of the hamburger, to Pulaski, where they celebrate the polka with Pulaski Polish Days, these small Wisconsin communities are what make Wisconsin truly Wisconsin.
