SECRETARY AND SURGEON'S QUARTERS
In an effort to create a village setting where residents, patients, and caregivers all lived and worked, in 1887 this unique Colonial Revival residence was built to house Soldiers Home doctors.
Over the years, this building has housed various officers, and hospital staff. From September 1990 to early 2000, a state licensed child care center operated here.
In 2005, the City of Milwaukee Housing Authority partnered with the Hope House and the Milwaukee VA to repair the exterior and transform the interior into a home facility focusing on veterans who are homeless or in transition. The Secretary and Surgeon’s Quarter’s now serves as a group home with 13 separate bedrooms and provides rehabilitation services for homeless residents with priority placement for veterans.
