What a fabulous opportunity for only members  of HWTN!
This year’s Breast Cancer Showcase home is right in our HWTN area… Last year it was featured in Oconomowoc.  No waiting in line for the public tours… plenty of time to ask questions of the knowledgeable tour guides. Take as much time as you desire to tour each of the incredible, historic rooms, uniquely designed/decorated by top area designers.

Cost is $20 per person, check payable to WBCS (Wisconsin Breast Cancer Showcase) and mail to HWTN PO Box 668, Milwaukee, WI 53201.  Checks due by Saturday, June 10, 2017. This $20 cost is the discount cost for the in advance public tour, thus this is an incredible value for our private tour/garden party. RESERVE YOUR SPACE EARLY… pre-registration is necessary.

As with all our garden parties, our attending members should bring either an appetizer or dessert to share, their own beverage (bottle of wine, etc.), and own glass.

Read the background of this incredible home.  A beautiful home to view with an outstanding history.  Please join us for this very unique HWTN Garden Party.

Nader Sayadi is a doctoral candidate at the UWM School of Architecture and  Urban Planning.  He is also working as an intern with Milwaukee’s Historic Preservation Commission.   Adaptive reuse of historic buildings and spaces is a topic as old as it is new because humans have been re- purposing structures as long as they have been building them!  Nader will give us some good examples of local successes and losses.
