History

It used to be known as "Town of De Pere" until the town decided to change the name in order to stop confusion with the City of De Pere. The township at first wrote the city fathers of De Pere to see if they would change their name, as the Town of De Pere was older than the City of De Pere. The City of De Pere refused.[3]
