Our Village is a community of attractive residential neighborhoods, punctuated with a vibrant district of fine stores, and excellent schools. It is filled with homes and other buildings that are architecturally rich, well-designed and maintained, and diverse in character.
Former residents have contributed much to the cultural, political, economic and social history of the area and many current residents are interested in maintaining their connection with the community’s historic past.
To help maintain these connections, the Whitefish Bay Historic Preservation Commission has worked to identify buildings and other sites within the Community that are architecturally significant or historic.
A program has been established to install sidewalk medallions in front of properties that are deemed architecturally significant or historic to aid in their recognition. It is anticipated that additional medallions will be installed to recognize other sites on the Whitefish Bay Architecture and History Inventory as time and budget allows.
