The Making of the Milwaukee Region
Milwaukee was known as “good land” to Native Americans, a place of abundant natural resources. It became, over the decades, a major Great Lakes port, a stronghold of industry, a capital of ethnic diversity, a model of good government, and one of the most livable large cities in America. “The Making of Milwaukee” is a fast-paced PowerPoint program that captures the full sweep of the Milwaukee area’s history, from its wilderness past to the complex patterns of the 21st century. Tickets are $9 adults, $5 students, and include a raffle drawing, book signing, and free beer tasting courtesy of City Lights Brewing.
