Shipwrecks of the Fox River

Once the lifeblood of Green Bay's economy in the late 1800s and early 1900s, tug boats and barges were shipping workhorses. When they became old and beyond repair, or were put out of work by the Great Depression, these vessels were abandoned and left to sink to the bottom of the river near the current Fox River Cleanup Project Processing Facility.

To meet the goals of the project, these vessels were removed in late 2013 and early 2014.

This informational board about the Shipwrecks of the Fox River is now on display at the Neville Public Museum in Green Bay.
