The Milwaukee County Historical Society was founded in 1935 to collect, preserve and make available materials relating to the history of the Milwaukee community. Through a broad range of activities, the Historical Society seeks to recognize and preserve our local history. In promoting a greater appreciation of Milwaukee County’s heritage, the Historical Society hopes to develop a better understanding of the issues and challenges facing Milwaukee County today.
The vision of the Milwaukee County Historical Society (MCHS) is that all residents of and visitors to Milwaukee County will connect with the history of the County and will understand its importance today and in the future.
MCHS is located in a landmarked neoclassical building in downtown Milwaukee that was built in 1913 as the Second Ward Savings Bank and acted as a bank until 1964. The Milwaukee County Historical Society opened its doors to the public in 1966.
In addition to the downtown Historical Center, MCHS also operates four other historic sites, including Trimborn Farm and the Jeremiah Curtin House in Greendale, the Lowell Damon House in Wauwatosa, and Kilbourntown House in Shorewood.
