An Evening at the Milwaukee Club

Thursday, March 28 at 6 pm
At the Milwaukee Club
706 N. Jefferson St.

Join Historic Milwaukee for a night of history and architecture at the Milwaukee Club.

Built in 1882, the Milwaukee Club is the oldest city club in its original clubhouse west of the Allegany’s. Often confused with Edward Townsend Mix, the club was in fact designed by famed architect, Daniel Burnham. Known as a father of the skyscraper, Burnham is also credited with being the visionary behind Chicago (he co-authored the Chicago Plan of 1909, which laid out plans for the city’s future), a founder of the Chicago School of Architecture, and changed the way America built cities with his work as chief coordinating architect of the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition.

Event guests will enjoy heavy hors d’oeuvres and hear a program from Christopher Multhauf. Multhauf is a docent and an exhibit host for the Chicago Architecture Center, where he created the popular Devil in the White City Companion Tour. His professional experience has been in higher education, community based economic development, and managed healthcare.

Tickets: $50 Members / $60 Non-Members
