Marinette, Wisconson. The town is situated on the shores of Green Bay, the city and the county, were named for a woman. And not just any woman. Marinette was half French, half Native American, the granddaughter of a chief, and a fur trader who was named after a queen. The city of Marinette, Wisconsin, sits on the south side of the Menominee River. It’s a rich land whose abundant forests and location at the mouth of Green Bay made it a prime spot for logging and as a fur trading post. Today, the town's heritage and natural beauty make it a destination for those who love both history and the great outdoors. The following are just some of the things you can do during your vacation stay in Marinette, Wisconsin.
Bronze Signal Cannons. In between the monuments to Marinette’s founder and its prominent politician and philanthropist, you'll find two cannons. Isaac Stephenson donated these cannons, forged in 1846 and 1854, in 1914 to be displayed on the lawn of Stephenson Public Library. The bronze signal cannons are located along the Menominee River. At some point, they found their current spot along the river across from 1947 Riverside. As the Historic Riverside Avenue Walking Tour brochure says, they were moved to their present location for reasons forgotten a long time ago.
Historic Riverside Avenue Walking Tour. Those monuments are part of the Historic Riverside Avenue Walking Tour. Across the street from them is a parade of historic homes. The two oldest extant homes were built in 1885, although one was remodeled in the Tudor Revival style in 1925. Frank Lauerman Sr., another prominent Marinette citizen, built his home in 1938. The Homes of Tomorrow Exhibition at the 1933-1934 Chicago World’s Fair inspired him, and to this day it’s the only house in Marinette in the International Style.
