Brown County is a county in the U.S. state of Wisconsin. As of 2010, the population was 248,007. The county seat is Green Bay. The United States Census Bureau's Green Bay Metropolitan Statistical Area includes all of Brown, Kewaunee, and Oconto counties.

Brown County is one of Wisconsin's two original counties along with Crawford County and originally spanned the entire eastern half of the state when formed by the Michigan Territorial legislature in 1818.
