If you like PBR you will find the history of the family interesting background the next time you enjoy a cold one. Makes you think of what the area surrounding the home must have looked like at the time the family lived there.

Most rooms are now totally renovated back to the original colors and furnishings. Guide gave a ton of info on the family, and knew the story behind any artifact. A+

This is a marvelous mansion, although in need of some repair which they continually work on and more power to them. The guide is very knowledgeable and open to suggestions on various theories. An interesting background to the family beginnings. I would say go and visit and support.

The tour was very detailed on history and information on design. This mansion gives you a view into the past and the way of life at the turn of the last century.

Learn how the Beer Barons who settled Milwaukee in the 1800's lived. A super trip and great place to enjoy the fashion and culture of yester year. Come and enjoy real luxury . Christmas decorations here are splendid.
