The Milwaukee County Historical Society was founded in 1935 to collect, preserve and make available materials relating to the history of the Milwaukee community. Through a broad range of activities, the Historical Society seeks to recognize and preserve our local history.
The Wauwatosa Historical Society is proud to pay homage to the people, life, structures, and heritage of this community. Native Americans first lived in the wilderness that would become Wauwatosa. The United States government entered into treaties with the Menomonee and Potawatomi Indians in the 1830s.
