Milwaukee: City of Neighborhoods

Milwaukee: City of Neighborhoods is a book by historian John Gurda published by Historic Milwaukee, Inc. Click on the map below for a sneak peak of each neighborhood as featured in the 2015 book. Each neighborhood is also celebrated by a custom poster designed by Jan Kotowitz. You can purchase the book and the posters through HMI. Explore how the neighborhoods relate with Our Water Stories and other map layers by downloading the Milwaukee Community Map for Google Earth.
