National Trust, Milwaukee Preservation Alliance Announce Latest Addition to the Milwaukee VA Soldiers Home Historic District
Today, we announced new signage along the Hank Aaron State Trail that will educate trail
users about the Milwaukee VA Soldiers Home Historic District.
The signage presents trail users with a brief history of the Milwaukee Soldiers Home, its landscape and some of its most notable buildings, including Old Main and Ward Memorial Hall. The signs were purchased thanks to a successful fundraising campaign led by MPA. In addition to the Hank Aaron State Trail signage, the campaign funded signage along Interstate 94 and the creation of a free, downloadable walking tour smartphone app.
