  48. In 1931, Dr. J.R. Lenfestey of De Pere and several other men rented property from Charles Hockers in Allouez in the 3800 block of Riverside Drive to fulfill a dream of starting a polo club. The Green Bay-De Pere Polo Field was born, and the team played its first official match in July 1932 against the Fort Sheridan Army Polo Team, which was composed of many West Point graduates. It is believed to be among the first polo matches of its kind in this part of the country. More than 2,000 people are believed to have attended that match, which was more than the population of Allouez at the time. Fort Sheridan won the match 6-0. From 1932 to 1936, the local team competed against teams from Milwaukee, Chicago, Eau Claire, Marinette and Menominee, Mich. St. Norbert College bought the field from the Hockers family for a nominal fee and 'other good and valuable considerations' and began building Minahan Stadium in 1937. In the 1960s, De Pere annexed the property, which is now a cornfield on North Broadway Street between For The Birds and Walsh Law Office, S.C. Photo submitted by Historic Allouez Society from t
