The Pabst Mansion was completed in 1892 for one of Milwaukee’s most famous beer barons Captain Frederick Pabst. The only survivor of eighty homes that once lined Grand Avenue, it was designed by the noted Ferry & Clas Architectural Firm in the Flemish Renaissance style. The exterior is dominated by two large stepped gables, a loggia, lions heads, and a serpent. The interiors showcase exquisite woodwork, stained glass, tile, fabrics, ironwork, and fine art. The Pabst Mansion is a historic house museum open to the public year around.
