I-94 Signage Installed for Milwaukee Soldiers Home
We often hear from people who have lived in the area their entire lives, but never knew about the Milwaukee Soldiers Home. This week, we made great progress in raising awareness of one of Milwaukee’s own National Historic Landmarks.
Thanks to funds raised by the Milwaukee Preservation Alliance (MPA), including individual donations and a $5,000 matching grant from the National Trust for Historic Preservation, signs were manufactured and installed along I-94 to direct visitors to the Milwaukee Soldiers Home National Historic Landmark District.
The fundraising campaign was part of a broader effort led by MPA, the National Trust for Historic Preservation and other local preservation and veteran groups, to raise awareness of the Soldiers Home Historic District and promote the rehabilitation of key historic buildings in order to return them to the service of veterans.
