Brewers Hill Collection

Title: Brewers Hill Collection
Call Number: Mss-1830

Abstract:

The collection consists of research done by a Brewers Hill resident on the history of the homes in the neighborhood.  This collection contains general information about the Brewers Hill neighborhood as well as information about specific homes in the area.  The homes are listed by historic name and then present address.

Historical Note:

Brewers Hill is one of Milwaukee’s oldest neighborhoods.  It is a distinct Victorian neighborhood set on a hill overlooking downtown.  It is called Brewers Hill due to its close proximity of the Joseph Schlitz Brewing Complex.  The homes in the area are a mix of single and multi-family homes that represents an array of Greek Revival, Queen Anne, Colonial Revival and Italianate architectural styles.  In addition to homes, the neighborhood also contains some businesses, such as the F. Mayer Boot and Shoe Company and the Jung Brewing Company.  The neighborhood is bordered on the north by North Avenue, to the east by Holton Avenue, to the south by the Milwaukee River and Pleasant Street and to the west by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive.

Administrative Note:

Collection was donated by Joanne Toman in March 2012.  The collection was processed by Sarah Hopley in April 2012.
