Milwaukee County War Memorial Center,
750 N. Lincoln Memorial Drive,
More than 150 years ago, the Milwaukee Soldiers Home, a National Historic Landmark, was established as a place for Civil War soldiers to recuperate and transition back into society. Though many of the Soldiers Home buildings remain in use, some of the most important and historic – including the iconic Old Main – are unoccupied and rapidly deteriorating. However, thanks to a new redevelopment project, that is about to change. Join us as David Uihlein, of Uihlein/Wilson Architects, shares the vision for returning six historic buildings to their original purpose: the service veterans. Because every hero deserves a home.
Rotary meetings are open to members, invited guests and media.
