We are out of tickets to this event

What’s the status of Milwaukee’s architectural heritage? What’s at risk? What’s been lost? Join the Bay View Community Center for An Evening with Milwaukee Writer and Historian John Gurda on Wednesday, July 10. John will chronicle victories and losses in the movement to save and celebrate the city’s unique historic heritage.

The event is in a unique Bay View warehouse space that demonstrates creative re-purposing of historic gems. It will feature food, drinks, music by Danny Kerns, and a silent auction. All proceeds benefit the services of Bay View Community Center. The event starts at 6:30 p.m. with Gurda speaking at 7:30 p.m. followed by brief Q&A discussion and more socializing with other community-oriented folks until 9 p.m.

This will be a very special night, and we want our Urban Milwaukee members to attend for free. Not a member yet? If you sign-up today, you will receive two tickets to this event – worth $80 – while supplies last. Once you join our membership program, you can follow this link to reserve up to two tickets to this event.

Alongside free admission to this unique event, your Urban Milwaukee membership will get you many other perks, including:
