Property Name: Pioneer Building

Property Location: 625 N. Milwaukee Street, Milwaukee, WI

Statement of Significance: This four-story, brick building has a concrete and ceramic tile frame. It was constructed in 1865 for the Milwaukee Musical Society, a German immigrant choral and instrumental group. Serving as an Academy of Music and performance venue, the facility’s main hall seated approximately 2,000 individuals.

The structure was altered over time, but perhaps most significantly in 1925 when it was converted to office and commercial use and renamed the Pioneer Building. Since then, it has served many businesses, including a hat manufacturer, printer, seamstress and numerous retail concerns.

The building is a contributing element within Milwaukee’s East Side Commercial Historic District, which was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1986.

625 N. Milwaukee Street, Milwaukee, WI.
