It's the oldest rivalry in the NFL: the Bears and Packers have been playing for almost 100 years.
Monday in Lambeau will be the 187th meeting between the two.
"These are the halls of our memories," says Kevin Cullen, curator, Neville Museum. "Its important to have those places where people can come and remember the past."
At the Neville Museum in Green Bay, more than one million photographs and documents detail local history; a history with deep green and gold roots often blended with blue and orange.
"It's definitely that snapshot in time gives you a sense of place, you look back and see what people were like and what they were wearing," Cullen adds.
"People didn't wear Packer gear, Bear gear to the stadium back then," says Cliff Christ, author Mudbaths and Bloodbaths. "The men would dress in suits."
People adjusted their lives to be a part of the Packers/Bears story.
In the 1920's a special 4 a.m. mass was started in Green Bay so people didn't miss church or the train.
"The fans would catch the early morning train on Sunday, go to Chicago, get out to Wrigley field, go to the ballgame and then come back that night."
When the Bears came to Green Bay all bets were off.
From a manure filled locker-room to welcome Chicago to efforts to tip the team bus, the rivalry extended far beyond the broken bones on the field.
"Both of them told me that they'd have to wear their helmets on the bench because the Packers' fans at old city stadium would throw whisky bottles at them on and off the field," says Christi.
But despite the harsh words and rough plays, the teams have depended on each other for success.
Founder and longtime coach of the bears, George Halas, is credited with helping convince the people of green bay to build what is now Lambeau Field.
Halas knew he needed the Packers around to continue selling tickets.
"In 1941, Packers and Bears tied for the division championship. They played on a bitterly cold day in Chicago, in a playoff, the game drew 43,000 fans. The next week was the NFL championship game that drew 13,000 fans."
"I don't know that the National Football league would have survived without the packer bear rivalry," Christi adds.
CBS4 will have live reports from Lambeau before the big game Monday night on the CBS4 News at both 5 p.m. and 6 p.m.
