These 13 Photos Of Milwaukee From The Early 1900s Are Beyond Fascinating

Milwaukee is dedicated to keeping our history alive, and there is a lot of it. From our industrial era to our astounding architecture, Milwaukee history is as fascinating as it is beautiful. Thanks to a large catalog of historic photographs, we can view today what our city looked like as far back as the early 1900s! Brew City’s roots run far back into history, but you can still see glimpses of present day beneath the film of these photographs from over a century ago.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date.
