Urban Spelunking: The Modjeska Theater

Once upon a time, The Modjeska Theater, 1134 W. Mitchell St., was a neighborhood movie palace, the big daddy of Mitchell Street, the second busiest thoroughfare in Milwaukee after Wisconsin Avenue. Now, after four dormant years, and decades after it ended its run as a movie house, Mitchell Street Development Opportunity Corporation is cleaning it up, with an eye toward re-opening in spring with a mix of movies, concerts and other live performances.

1913 hurricane book
Though we all remember the 2010 "once in a lifetime" storm that caused terrible flooding around the Milwaukee area, few of us have seen anything like the dramatic 1913 Great Lakes hurricane, which toppled ships, killed hundreds sailors - and folks on shore, too - from Lake Superior and Lake Michigan to Lake Huron. Thanks to Milwaukee author Michael Schumacher we can learn more about the four-day storm that raged through the Great Lakes, including Milwaukee, in November 1913.
