Howard

Welcome to the Village of Howard, Wisconsin! Howard (population 18,166) is located in Brown County and is contiguous to the City of Green Bay, the Village of Hobart, the Village of Suamico and abuts the bay of Green Bay with over three (3) miles of shoreline.

The Village of Howard is one of the premiere places to live in Northeast Wisconsin. Howard boasts one of the best school districts in Wisconsin (Howard-Suamico School District) and is also home to several corporate offices, including UnitedHealth Care (division of the UnitedHealth Group), N-Sight Communication, WIPFLI CPA and Consulting (regional corporate office).

The Town of Howard was established in 1835 and gradually developed along Duck Creek as a center for mail delivery, farming, quarrying and lumbering. By 1856, Howard had its own school and was quickly becoming well known for its Duck Creek stone quarries. By 1959 the population had grown significantly, and the town incorporated as the Village of Howard.

The Village of Howard has more than 20 parks and natural areas spanning hundreds of acres that provide excellent opportunities for recreation, relaxation and family fun. Howard’s Memorial Park is the trail head of the Mountain Bay Trail, which runs through three counties in northeast Wisconsin and is 83 miles long (6 miles in Brown County).

Howard-Suamico School District prides itself on delivering a comprehensive education to every child. We are regarded both regionally and nationally as a high
performing school system. For example, Bay Port High School has been recognized by Newsweek and the Washington Post as one of the top high schools in the nation. Furthermore, the District was named by the Wisconsin Center for Performance Excellence as a Proficiency Award Winner in 2011. Our mission is to “work together with families and community to ensure that our students have the knowledge and skills to succeed in a changing world.”
