Brewers Hill

Episode 507: Shot in Summer 2015, first aired in February 2016

The Historic Brewers Hill neighborhood is located on bluffs overlooking the Milwaukee River valley, which emerged as the river, century after century, cut into its valley. The neighborhood remains as one of two residential areas from the City of Milwaukee’s original settlement period during the 1830s but it wasn’t until the 1850s that the neighborhood was officially plated on paper as Sherman’s Addition to Kilbourntown.

Present day, Historic Brewers Hill remains as an integrated neighborhood with a mix of income, lifestyles, and building choices.
