Passport Site

Constructed with Milwaukee Cream City brick and crowned with three bulbous onion domes St. George Church was constructed in 1917 for worship by Wisconsin’s Middle-Eastern Christian congregation. Architect Erhard Brielmaier created a design that fit into the Milwaukee landscape while reflecting the community’s Lebanese and Syrian founding families. After 50 years behind pasteboard the ceiling was restored with the labor of parishioners and friends.
Visitors to St. George can take self-guided tours, ask questions or join a guided tour. The icon screen, new ceiling, quiet recordings of Byzantine chant and the aroma of incense from the morning service will greet visitors. Learn about the 1892 Colombian Exhibition story that brought Melkites to Milwaukee.
