The Wisconsin Historical Society recently announced the listing of the Sunset Circle Residential Historic District in the Village of Allouez (Brown County) on the State Register of Historic Places. The district is located between Riverside Drive and Sunset Park on the Fox River and includes the Vincent and Marie Lombardi House.

The Sunset Circle Residential Historic District is important as a distinct concentration of houses that represent high-style interpretations of the Colonial Revival, Ranch, and Mansard styles that were popularized in the twentieth century.

The district encompasses 16 houses constructed between 1940 and 1989. It is part of the Sunlight Park subdivision which opened in 1932.

The Lombardi House is individually significant as well for its association with Vince Lombardi, who served as head coach of the Green Bay Packers National Football League (NFL) team from 1959 to 1967. The Lombardi family commissioned the construction of their Sunset Circle residence and resided there throughout the coach’s years with the Packers.
