Check out feature and photos on gorgeous HWTN mansion

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s “At Home With…” column recently featured another stunning HWTN-area home. This home is owned by HWTN members Andrew and Laura Brusky.

“More than a century after the home was built, the Bruskys find that it suits them perfectly. It will enable them to host philanthropic events. Their interest in the area has led to work with the Historic Water Tower Neighborhood, including hosting house and garden parties held by the organization. Andrew is vice president of membership for the group.”

Enjoy the story and photos!

HWTN Eschweiler home featured in Journal Sentinel

A lovely 1894 Alexander C. Eschweiler-designed home in the Historic Water Tower Neighborhood was recently an “At Home With…” feature in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

“Among the home’s distinctive features are the flared eaves punctuated by 198 fishtail rafters. They resemble the upcurved eaves of Japanese pagodas. Eschweiler was known for his striking Japonist pagoda design for filling stations for Wadham’s Oil and Grease Company. One of the few remaining ‘Wadham’s pagodas’ is located in Cedarburg’s Washington Avenue Historic District.”

The feature and photo gallery includes interviews with the owners, Cate and Colin Scanes. The Scanes are HWTN members, and Colin is currently our treasurer.
