All Points in the Fox River Valley

from 1882 Wisconsin State Gazeteer and Business Directory
The Green Bay and Western Railroad was formed in 1896 from the bankruptcy proceedings of the Green Bay, Winona & St Paul and the Kewaunee, Green Bay and Western.  In turn, the GB & W was absorbed into the Wisconsin Central in 1993.  This poster is a bit misleading; while the Green Bay, Winona & St. Paul didn't actually route itself through the Fox Cities, feeder lines like the C&NW helped connect Neenah-Menasha to Green Bay.
