Wisconsin Architecture

December 03, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Over the past several years, I've been taking road trips all over the country. Last month, I decided to take a much shorter photography trip. I drove from Chicago to Madison. After spending two nights in Madison, I drove to Milwaukee and spent one night there.

Although these cities are relatively close to my home, I have spent very little time in them. During my short stay, I was busy photographing several architectural sites. I came away from this trip with a much greater appreciation for Wisconsin architecture. Prior to this trip, I had no idea that Milwaukee City Hall was the tallest building in the United States at one time...or that the dome of the Basilica of St. Josephat was the second largest in the nation (behind the federal Capitol building in Washington, DC) at the time of its completion!

In the end, I photographed 7 locations. I'll post one photo from each location. To view the rest, simply click on the location title.
