Brown Co., Wisconsin, USA

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
 
 
Brown County is underlain by Paleozoic (Ordovician to Silurian) sedimentary rocks that strike NE and dip gently to the east, off the Wisconsin Dome. The rocks include dolostones, quartz sandstone and shale. The Silurian dolostone are particularly resistant and form a prominent cuesta (Niagara Escarpment) in the eastern part of the county. The carbonate rocks in the section are frequently quarried. Glacial till and lake deposits cover much of the county.

The County is also home to arguably the best American football team in the world, the Green Bay Packers, and their famous stadium, Lambeau Field.
