What is Milwaukee's Oldest Building?

Did you know that Milwaukee's oldest building isn't even from Milwaukee? It isn't even from the North American continent. In fact, it was built long before Milwaukee was a twinkle in Solomon Juneau's eyes.

The oldest building in Milwaukee is the St. Joan of Arc Chapel on Marquette's campus. It was built in France's Rhone River Valley sometime in the 15th century. It was moved stone by stone to Long Island, New York in 1927. From there it was eventually relocated to its current home on Marquette's campus. Its reconstruction started in July of 1965, and was dedicated May 26, 1966.
