Milwaukee’s Downtown buildings feature many “faces.” These ghoulish figures first appeared on medieval churches to remind people there is another world full of monsters, demons and strange beasts waiting for sinners. From monsters, angels and a shamrock or two, these architectural ornaments will delight you.
