  1. Over 100 pieces of artwork live within the two spaces, all created by local Wisconsin artists, telling stories of the last 100+ years. The building was set to meet its fate by a wrecking ball almost 5 years ago until its current ownership group came upon it and saw its potential, purchasing it for just a couple hundred dollars. The George was named after George Walker.
