Coast Guard Station (AUXOP) Green Bay History

Coast Guard Station Green Bay has had a long, extensive history in Green Bay, WI. Until the early 1960s, Coast Guard personnel worked out of the old, downtown fire house. Then, the operation was moved to a one of a kind houseboat that was towed down the Fox River in the spring to the Main St. Bridge, and then towed back to its winter storage at an Allouez, WI marina. The station/boathouse were manned by personnel from Station Sturgeon Bay and the famous Ninth District Summer Stock program. This operation lasted for more than 17 years before the houseboat was placed on shore on a small plot of land next to the Green bay Yacht Club at the mouth of the Fox River. In 1992, the houseboat was finally replaced by the present day building.
