GREEN BAY - Uncovering Packers history that many people are seeing for the first time! We all know the story of Lambeau Field, but what about where Curly Lambeau grew up? Or where the Packers first played their games? One group is making sure these key pieces to Green and Gold history are never forgotten.
Packers Heritage Trail Trolley Tours is bringing Packer backers from all over the state to Green Bay. One of those people is Rooty Leigh of Madison.
"I've been to all the Superbowls so far," said Leigh.
Packers history surrounding local downtown businesses is boosting the area and peaking interest of fans to the city.
"I don't think some of these people probably even know about some of it," said Leigh.
There are 22 places marked on the map, but the tours cover more than 30 historical sites.
"To really show people what a part of the Green Bay the Packers truly are," said Susan Broberg. She is the owner of C&M Presents and the organizer of the Trolley Tours.
The tours are teaming up with Let Me Be Frank Productions, who's also producing a play about Curly Lambeau's life. Frank Hermans plays Curly in the play and he will be guiding some of the tours.
"This is something that my mom and dad don't even remember, it's there mom and dad because this is the 1920's, the 1930's in Green Bay, Wisconsin," said Hermans.
These tours helping people like Leigh understand Packer roots.
"It's just awesome and I would think it would help Green Bay in a very big way," she said.
The tours run almost every day throughout training camp. Tickets can be purchased through Ticket Star and are $25.00 a piece.
