The Village of Whitefish Bay Historic Preservation Commission has designed their first walking tour of historic homes in the Bay. From their literature:
Our Village is a community of attractive residential neighborhoods, punctuated with a vibrant district of fine stores, excellent schools and welcoming houses of worship. It is filled with homes and other buildings that are architecturally rich, well-designed and maintained, and diverse in character. Its past residents have contributed much to the cultural, political, economic and social history of the area. And its current residents are interested in maintaining their connection with the community's historic past.
To help maintain these connections, the Whitefish Bay Historic Preservation Commission has been identifying buildings and other sites within the Community that are architecturally significant or historic. A program has been established to install sidewalk medallions in front of these properties, to aid in their recognition.
The initial medallions were installed in 2009 in the Cumberland Forest and Wilshire neighborhoods of the Village. A walking tour has been created to view the homes in these neighborhoods
It is anticipated that additional medallions will be installed over the next few years to recognize all sites on the Village's architecture and history inventory.
Additional information about each of the sites on the Village's architecture and history inventory is available at the Reference Desk of the WFB Library, or on-line.
