Historic Milwaukee, Inc. is Milwaukee's only nonprofit tour provider. Our mission is to increase awareness of Milwaukee's history, architecture, and the built environment.

We are excited to announce a new self-guided walking tour of the Historic Financial District (also known as the East Side Commercial Historic District). This project was funded in part by a grant from the Wisconsin Humanities Council, with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the State of Wisconsin. The Wisconsin Humanities Council supports and creates programs that use history, culture and discussion to strengthen community life for everyone in Wisconsin. Read more about it here.

Our gift ship is stocked with Milwaukee books, art, cards, magnets, glassware & pins.
