Look inside this tudor mansion on Milwaukee's East Side, for sale now

Whenever we talk about an East Side mansion on Urban Spelunking, the pictures alone are usually enough to pique my interest. Unless you live in one of them, you probably don't often get an invitation to peer inside one of those majestic homes on Lake Drive.

This week on the podcast, we have such an invitation at the George Wiswell Mansion at 2701 N. Lake Dr.; plus we share generations of history and notable Milwaukeeans who have lived there over the years, including a prominent judge, a political party leader and business owner whose company helped construct the breakwaters along Lake Michigan.

"Built in 1895-6 at a cost of $6,000, the house was designed by George Bowman Ferry and Alfred C. Clas, the renowned Milwaukee architects of structures like The Pabst Mansion, Central Library, St. James Court Apartments and, in Madison, the Wisconsin Historical Society," writes Bobby Tanzilo in his story published at OnMilwaukee.

At the time of recording, the home is listed for sale.

Listen to podcast below, and don't forget to visit OnMilwaukee for more pictures and history.
