We Honor & Educate
We coordinate and disseminate historical materials related to Wauwatosa while supporting, encouraging, and providing historical education for the community.
We manage two of Wauwatosa’s most historic properties, the Kneeland-Walker House and the Little Red Store, providing tours and rentals for the community.
Through community events, like our Speaker Series and Firefly Art Fair, we seek to engage the public in the history of Wauwatosa, all while having a good time.
