Description [edit]
Constructed in 1882, Turner Hall began as a showplace for the panoramic painters and other German immigrant artists who dominated the Milwaukee art scene until the 1920s and throughout the early 1900s. It is the only building in Milwaukee that currently holds the three following honorary architectural and historical designations: a National Landmark, a listing on the National Registry of Historic Places, and a local Historical Landmark. Located in the heart of downtown, across from the BMO Harris Bradley Center, the two-story, 7,000 - plus square foot Ballroom is a central hub for a vast array of events in Milwaukee.
