Stopped to see the Pabst Mansion. Impressive! To see this mansion being restored to its original glory is just magnificent. The floors, the walls, to the ceilings are just Wow! It's too bad that Milwaukee didn't keep the other mansions. It's called history.

Very interesting well worth the stop. Tour includes almost all the rooms of the house. First floor has much of the original furnishings. Would have been a terrible loss if the neighboring hotel had been able to purchase and demolish for parking. A must see
