Designed as a place to aid veterans’ healing and ease their transition back into civilian life, the Milwaukee Soldiers Home (Northwestern Branch of the National Home for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers) was established in 1867. Nestled into a picturesque landscape, the recuperative village boasts as many as 48 historic resources including marvelous Victorian architecture designed by renowned Milwaukee architects Edward Townsend Mix and Henry C. Koch. Join Milwaukee Preservation Alliance and others who care deeply about the Soldiers Home for an in-depth, outdoor guided walking tour through the grounds and learn about the architecture and history of the buildings.
