You may have had your eyes checked in the former Wauwatosa City Hall

It's known as the Hoyt Building in Wauwatosa. It also served as an early City Hall building, as the city as it was becoming established.

These days it is home to Be Spectacled, a boutique optometry practice in Tosa. But bookended between its municipal uses and its current tenant, the building was home to a few well-known retail stores including Drews Variety and a Ben Franklin.

This week on Urban Spelunking, we visit the building in the heart of the Wauwatosa Village and update you on the future plans, plus give insight into the hundred-plus years of history on that site.

Listen to this week's episode below and read OnMilwaukee Bobby Tanzilo's story here.
