Overview

The Packers Heritage Trail Plaza was dedicated in 2013 and is located at the corner of Washington and Cherry streets in downtown Green Bay. The Packers Heritage Trail, which celebrates 50 years of Packers history from Curly Lambeau to Vince Lombardi, was created a year earlier with 22 commemorative plaques placed at sites mostly in downtown Green Bay.

The statues at the plaza include Packers co-founder George Whitney Calhoun; and former stars Johnny Blood, Clarke Hinkle, Paul Hornung and Bart Starr. Accompanying Hinkle and Starr are statues of a young boy holding Hinkle’s hand and a young girl seeking an autograph from Starr. The final statue placed was the drummer from the Lumberjack Band.

All of the statues at the plaza were sculpted by The Fine Art Studio of Rotblatt-Amrany, in Highwood, IL.
The plaza was designed by Performa Inc., of De Pere and constructed by Miron.
