Big, bold and beautiful. Once the center of Milwaukee highlife, this illustrious home now hosts tour groups, lectures and receptions.
In 1892, Captain Frederick Pabst completed this Flemish Renaissance mansion, a house so expansive and ornate that it quickly became a hub of Milwaukee's high society. Perhaps remembering the stormy nights he spent sleeping in a bunk at sea, Pabst included 14 fireplaces in the 37-room house. In 1908, the building was sold to the Milwaukee Archdiocese as a home for the next five archbishops. In 1978, it was purchased again by a nonprofit group, restored and opened to the public.
What to See
Numerous lectures, holiday concerts, receptions, and exhibits of period toys and vintage wedding attire are regular features at the historic home west of downtown.
