Built in 1868, this example of mid-19th century architecture is one of the oldest homes on its original foundation with its original exterior.

On April 9, 1898, two residents of this home, Marcel and Mary Lambeau, gave birth to their first child, Earl "Curly" Lambeau. Curly went on to star in football at Green Bay East High School, located just 5 blocks from this spot. He then briefly attended Notre Dame University in 1918, scoring the first touchdown ever for Motre Dame's first year football coach, Knute Rockne.

In August 1919, Curly and George Calhoun co-founded a football team that became the Green Bay Packers. Chosen as captain before the first practice, Lambeau played for the Packers through 1929 and coached them through 1949. He won a record six NFL championship, including a record three straight from 1929 - 1931. Both records remain unsurpassed.

Lambeau died on June 1, 1965. Shortly thereafter, Lambeau Field, the longest continually occupied NFL stadium, was named after him. Lambeau Field is widely regarded as the most famous venue in the National Football League.
