What Milwaukee, WI looked like in the 1890s

Milwaukee’s first suburbs were incorporated in the late 19th century. The village of Bay View existed as an independent entity from 1879 to 1886. Whitefish Bay, South Milwaukee, and Wauwatosa were incorporated in 1892. Cudahy (1895), North Milwaukee (1897), and East Milwaukee (later known as Shorewood) followed.

Milwaukee City Hall was completed in 1895. When City Hall was completed, it was the tallest habitable building in the world, standing at 393 feet. The building was also one of the tallest structures in the world, behind non-habitable buildings such as the Eiffel Tower and the Washington Monument. When Philadelphia City Hall was completed in 1901, it became the tallest government building in the world.
