Fort Howard was a city in Brown County, Wisconsin, United States. It was first incorporated as a "borough" of 664 acres on October 13, 1856. As the result of a referendum on the union of the two cities held on April 2, 1895, the city was entirely annexed to the City of Green Bay and ceased to exist.[1]

The city took its name from nearby Fort Howard.[2] William H. Bartran, Wisconsin state legislator and physician, served as mayor of Fort Howard.[3]
