Feb. 5 in history

Feb. 5, 1931 - See dream of many years now possible: The introduction of a bill by Senator John J. Blaine of Wisconsin asking an appropriation of $250,000 for the establishment of Fort Howard National park, is the first real step toward the realization of a dream of hundreds of loyal Green Bay.

The bill has as its chief objective the purchase of lands and the restoration of original Fort Howard Buildings to take their proper places on these sites. As envisioned the park would be a nation park and would be in the hands of the Secretary of the Interior and the National Park service in both development and maintenance.

Although the desire to preserve the old buildings which were used by federal troops more than 100 years ago has been expressed by many good souls long gone to their reward, nothing definite was accomplished until last spring.
