Howard has several identified archeological sites, as well as some potential regions of archeological significance.  The primary location for archeological sites is along the Duck Creek corridor and includes the Pamperin Park area and the Bay of Green Bay shoreline.  At least two Native American burial sites have been identified: one along Duck Creek and one along the Bay.  Other important areas for archeological sites are in the old village of Duck Creek near the Glendale quarry.  This is where records indicate Native American and European settlement 17th-19th centuries.  (Information from Village of Howard)
