Urban spelunking: St. Paul's tower speaks volumes without making a sound

Published April 7, 2014

Nothing beats a new perspective. That's part of the fun of climbing to the roofs and towers of local buildings - to get a fresh look at a familiar city. Those visits and climbs almost always also offer a different take on the building itself. Take St. Paul's Episcopal Church on the corner of Knapp and Marshall Streets, erected in 1883 to the plans of Edward Townsend Mix. I climbed its tower recently and got a new look at Milwaukee and St. Paul's.


Urban spelunking: Wisconsin Club / Alexander Mitchell mansion

Published Dec. 19, 2013

I still like to call it "the old Mitchell place," but, to be fair, the elaborate, historic house behind the gate at 900 W.

The earliest part of the house was erected in 1848 but it's undergone many changes over the years.

Downer's spiteful construction

Published Aug. 9, 2013

Spite houses are a pretty common occurrence; common enough that Wikipedia even has a page for them. Milwaukee's most famous spite house was built by the still-famous Judge Jason Downer on the lower East Side and still stands at 1223 N. Prospect Ave.


Free app walks through history at the National Soldiers Home

Published July 23, 2013

There's no better time to head out to what a lot of Milwaukeeans used to simply call "Wood, Wisconsin," for a tour of the grounds. Best of all, you can go anytime and the tour is free, if you have an Android or iPhone. That's because there's a walking tour app - which just may be the first of its kind in the state - that you can download free and use as an audio tour and map to the sprawling 90-acre grounds.
