MID­CEN­TURY IM­MER­SION

Milwaukee Magazine - - Culture -

SINCE 1981, groups like His­toric Walker’s Point and now His­toric Mil­wau­kee are opening our eyes to ar­chi­tec­tural gems in ev­ery cor­ner of the city. Over the past three decades, over 40,000 peo­ple have toured unique places in neigh­bor­hoods from the Third Ward and Brady Street to Story Hill and Sher­man Park and seen how for­mer ware­houses, fac­to­ries, tav­erns and more have been ren­o­vated and re­stored.

In the lat­est in­stall­ment of the event se­ries Spa­ces & Traces, His­toric Mil­wau­kee vis­its Glen­dale to ex­plore eight mid­cen­tury homes and eight busi­nesses that tell the area’s story. The event starts with a lec­ture from Mil­wau­kee’s fa­vorite his­to­rian, John Gurda, at the Bavar­ian Bier­haus and wraps up with an af­ter­noon talk about mid­cen­tury modern homes in the area. The best part: Make your own itin­er­ary and go at your own pace.
