Have you ever wondered about the history of your house? Are you curious about what may have been on your property before your current home, or who may have lived there before? MPL's House History Program can help you answer these questions and more!
The program will be held on Saturday, October 22, from 9:30 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. at Central Library. Librarians and an architectural historian from Historic Milwaukee, Inc. will provide an overview of house history resources available at the library, including city directories, fire insurance atlases, tax rolls, newspaper indexes, etc. Most resources apply to homes located within the City of Milwaukee.
Advance registration is required; please call Central Library's Humanities Department at (414) 286-3061 to sign up. Admission is free, but space is limited. Sign up soon!
