Its waves of working-class immigrants, self-made millionaires, and socialist reformers have shaped Milwaukee into a city where historic places are sometime obliterated, sometimes repurposed, and sometimes restored. From the Grand Avenue mansions of a hundred years ago to the unrest of the 1960s, follies and nautical disasters to surprising resurgences of woods and wildlife, Milwaukee is a treasure trove of stories. We’ll hear some of those stories from lifelong resident and author John Gurda
