A 1966 survey by Bill Brault found Green Bay visitors wanted to know more about the Packers. The result was the first Packer Hall of Fame, which opened to the public in the concourse of the Brown County Veterans Memorial Arena in the summer of 1967.
Brault worked with the Brown County officials to include a permanent Hall of Fame addition as part of an addition to the county arena facilities. The Hall of Fame site was dedicated in April 1976, by then President Gerald R. Ford and the facility opened to the public in July of that year.
He served as Executive Director of the Packer Hall of Fame and president of the Green Bay Area Visitor and Convention Bureau from 1970-’94.
