Howard is a village in Brown and Outagamie counties in the U.S. state of Wisconsin. The population was 13,546 at the 2000 census. Recent estimates show Howard's population to be 16,412.[citation needed] It is part of the Green Bay Metropolitan Statistical Area.

The village is mostly within Brown County; a small portion extends west into Outagamie County. It is bordered to the east by Green Bay, a sub-basin of Lake Michigan. Prior to being incorporated as the Village of Howard, the Town of Howard was commonly referred to as "Duck Creek" because of the Duck Creek waterway winding its way through the village.

History

The Green Bay area was first explored by Europeans in 1634, when Jean Nicolet, a French voyager, arrived in the area. The Town of Howard was established in 1835 and slowly developed along the Duck Creek as a center for mail delivery, farming, quarrying and lumbering. It was named for Brigadier General Benjamin Howard, an officer in the War of 1812.[3] By 1856, a school was operating and the Town of Howard became known for its Duck Creek stone quarries.

By 1959, the population had grown and the Town of Howard became incorporated as the Village of Howard. Residential, commercial and industrial growth has continued steadily since that time, creating a suburban community on Green Bay's northwest side.[4]
