Milwaukee's Historical Architecture


There was recently an article on OMC called “Milwaukee Old vs. New” or something.  I couldn’t find it in the search but in this article Milwaukee’s old skyline won out over the new.  A lot of the old buildings were torn down in the 50s and 60s to make way for progress.  This got me doing some research on Milwaukee’s architecture and historical buildings and I found a website from a professor of architecture at my alma matter Milwaukee School of Engineering.  This website shows many historical Milwaukee building and explains when, how, and why they were built, and who build them.  Take a look at the link, I find it really interesting.  This might help you appreciate Milwaukee’s historical architecture that you drive past everyday and don’t even think about.
