Celebrating Bay View’s Rich History

Established in 1979, the Bay View Historical Society consists of volunteers dedicated to preserving and promoting the rich heritage of the Bay View neighborhood in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Our headquarters is located in the Historic Beulah Brinton House on the corner of South Superior Street and East Pryor Avenue in Bay View.

We are an affiliate of the Wisconsin State Historical Society and a nonprofit 501 (c) (3) organization. Your donations and in-kind gifts are tax deductible as allowed by law. If you would like to contribute to the society, please contact us.

In addition to sponsoring a wide variety of volunteer opportunities, programs and projects, the Society publishes a newsletter, presents bimonthly programs at the Beulah Brinton Community Center, and maintains community archives and research collections. Please make your way through our site using the links on the left, and thanks for coming by.
