About "Preserving Our Past"

The Village of Whitefish Bay is a community of residential neighborhoods, punctuated with an attractive walking district of fine stores, excellent schools and vibrant houses of worship. It is filled with homes and other buildings that are architecturally rich, well-designed and maintained, and diverse in character.

Its residents have contributed much to the broad cultural, political, economic and social history of the area. And its residents are interested in maintaining their connections with an historic past.

To help maintain these connections, the Historic Preservation Commission is in the process of identifying buildings and historic sites that it believes may be architecturally significant or historic. On a monthly basis we will feature a building or site from our inventory.

You may browse the archive of homes via the interactive map above, or through the listing below.

This page will also include articles by Whitefish Bay native Thomas H. Fehring, author of "Chronicles of Whitefish Bay" and the Preserving our Past stories below.

His first article is entitled Preserving Our Past and includes information on his recently published book.
