The Green Bay & De Pere Antiquarian Society, Inc.
Founded in 1923, we are a “one of a kind” non-profit organization** that supports regional historical museums and sites by providing grant monies for preservation and restoration of cultural artifacts.
An Annual Antique Show and Sale fundraiser is held each November to support this endeavor, as well as supporter donations and other fundraisers, such as the Step Back! Vintage Fashion Show, Pictorial History, & Society History Event held in May of 2011 (DVD's of this historical Fashion & History Show are available - order here).
We also own over 260 local, regional and national treasures that are placed in local historical buildings and museums, such as antique furniture, textiles, paintings, lighting fixtures, china, silver and objects of art.

The Society purchased this entire art collection from the Brown County Library for $1.2 million dollars through the 2007 Community Save Our Cultural Heritage Campaign. By doing so, we retained them for this community.
