On Sunday, January 31st, 2021 the City of Milwaukee celebrates its 175th birthday.

In 1846, the towns of Juneautown, Kilbourntown and Walker’s Point merged into one entity: Milwaukee. The city’s first Mayor, Solomon Juneau, was elected and the City of Milwaukee was born. On Sunday it will have been 175 years since our city’s founding, and if there’s one thing you should know about our publication, it’s that we really care about Milwaukee. To celebrate, we’re having a flash deal. Today through Sunday annual memberships are discounted by $25 — so you pay just $74 for the first year. It’s our way of celebrating our city’s 175th birthday. Happy birthday, Milwaukee!
