The Basilica of St. Josephat was the last stop of my trip to photograph Wisconsin architecture. I was very fortunate to have this magnificent interior to myself for about 90 minutes! I've photographed nearly 200 places of worship and this Milwaukee Basilica ranks high on my list.
Here are a few of my favorites from the visit:
Having lived in the Chicago suburbs for most of my life, it's kind of surprising how little time I've spent in nearby Milwaukee. This brief trip opened my eyes to some amazing architecture. I had no idea that Milwaukee City Hall was the tallest structure in the United States upon its completion. And, the dome of the Basilica (pictured above) was the second largest dome in the nation upon completion--second only to the United States Capitol building in Washington, D.C.
