Milwaukee: A City Built on Water
June 7 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
Join us for a screening of Milwaukee: A City Built on Water.
This documentary, featuring historian John Gurda, explores how the Milwaukee River and Lake Michigan spurred Milwaukee’s growth. Viewers will be taken on a chronological journey of Milwaukee’s hydrological systems: from settlers using rivers and Lake Michigan to transport grain, lumber, leather and beer to how the lower Milwaukee River was eventually reduced to an open sewer by 1900, with Lake Michigan suffering similar indignities.
The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with local experts.
For adults, teens and accompanied children
