Preservation at Risk

Each month, MPA will use this section to feature buildings and sites we consider to be “at-risk” of demolition - either imminent or in the future.

What MPA is doing:

We have reached out to the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, as well as the City of Milwaukee to make them aware of the building's state of disrepair. Should the Archdiocese bring forward an application for demolition, we will attend the Historic Preservation Commission and voice our dissent.

What MPA is doing:

We will be present at the demolition request meeting at the Historic Preservation Commission to voice our concerns over the razing of the building and to voice our dissent.
