Shorewood houses have a story to tell. House style, changes over time, and the people who have called the house their home, all add to the story. Just knowing when a house was built tells us a lot about materials used and neighborhood development.

To encourage people to learn and share more about their home and neighborhood, the Shorewood Historical Society is selling handsome granite markers that designate the “birth date” of an individual home. The markers are 8 in. square and will be placed in the boulevard in front of the home.

See BIRTHDAY MARKERS for more information and purchasing information.

About Us

The Village of Shorewood is nestled between Lake Michigan and the Milwaukee River, just north of the city of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The Shorewood Historical Society was formed in 1984 to preserve and promote the rich history of our Village.  Our collection of documents, pictures and other artifacts inspires research and educational programming and encourages us to serve as the institutional memory of our Village.
