The Northwestern National Insurance Company Building is today home to Northern Trust Bank.

From Guides to Historic Milwaukee: Juneautown Walking Tour by Mary Ellen Pagel and Virginia Palmer (1965)…

When they designed Northwestern National, George Bowman Ferry and Alfred C. Clas were already celebrated in Milwaukee for their work on the Milwaukee Public Library, the tower of St. John’s Cathedral, the First Unitarian Church, and the Frederick Pabst residence, now the Catholic Archdiocesan mansion. In the present building they chose to follow the predominant classical trend of the time and created an elegant example of the French Renaissance Revival style.

The building includes an addition built in 1963. The addition was designed by Grassold and Johnson.
