The Green Bay and Western Railroad was a paper carrying line and bridge route
operating between the Mississippi River at Winona, Minnesota and Lake Michigan
at Kewaunee, Wisconsin, via Green Bay. It was chartered in 1866 as the Green Bay
and Lake Pepin to provide an outlet for the region's timber and agriculture.
