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. In promoting a greater appreciation of Milwaukee County’s heritage, the Historical Society hopes to develop a better understanding of the issues and challenges facing Milwaukee County today.
The Historical Society operates three museum houses and one historic site. These properties and the Milwaukee County Historical Society’s downtown Historical Center are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Early nineteenth century Milwaukee settlers from diverse origins are represented by Trimborn Farm, the Jeremiah Curtin House, the Lowell Damon House, and Kilbourntown House.
