Avenues West and Marquette

The lively Marquette University campus and diverse residential streets now make up the heart of this neighborhood. You can’t miss signs that this was the historic home of Milwaukee’s elite, but today you’re more likely to run into college students than beer barons on Wisconsin Avenue. From beloved student hangouts to the Gilded Age glory of the Pabst Mansion, explore this gateway to Milwaukee's near west side neighborhoods.
