Neighborhood Sign: Walker's Point

Some of the previous week's photos were taken in the Walker's Point neighborhood. Founded by George Walker in June of 1835 as a fur trading post, Walker's settlement was combined with Juneautown and Kilbourntown to become the City of Milwaukee in 1846. Walker also contributed to the building of the city's first streetcar line in 1859.
