It's called Old Milwaukee

The page’s description reads that its purpose “is not about living in the past, it’s an appreciation for the people, lives & architecture from Milwaukee’s past.” Click below to hear our interview with the creator of this Milwaukee history group.

If you’re into Milwaukee history, there’s a Facebook group you’ve got to check out.

It’s called, simply, Old Milwaukee, and its run by Adam Levin.

It’s a passion project, and Adam say he doesn’t make a dime from running it.

Every day, Adam shares old photos he finds from a variety of sources, including Milwaukee County Historical Society and his personal collection.

He took the group over a few years ago when it had just 6,000 members.  Now, it has grown to more than 34,000 active users.
