Access the Index

This index lists addresses represented in the City of Milwaukee Premises Records located at Milwaukee Public Library in the City of Milwaukee Archives. Premises Records were compiled by the city’s Office of Building Inspection for some buildings that were in existence in Milwaukee between 1888 and 1980. The contents of each file vary significantly, but may include documents dating back to the original application to build through the process of razing one or more structures on the property. The property inspection functions of the former Office of Building Inspection are now part of the Department of Neighborhood Services.
