THE BUILDINGS AND BUILDING STONES OF DOWNTOWN MILWAUKEE
A number of downtown Milwaukee buildings using
stone as a building material have been selected to illustrate the
myriad interesting rock types that are visible in the downtown
area as well as the architectural history of the city. These
buildings range from among the earliest (State Bank of
Wisconsin/Bank of Milwaukee, 1856; 1858) to the recent (1000
North Water Street, 1991).
The buildings have been arranged in two longer tours with numerous buildings and two short tours with only two or three significant buildings in each. Only building exteriors have been included.
