Frank Lloyd Wright’s American System-Built Homes
2700 W. Burnham St., Burnham Park
One of the most interesting glimpses into Frank Lloyd Wright’s work can be caught from the 2700 block of West Burnham Street in Milwaukee. Here, there are several duplexes and bungalows from circa 1915 made with pre-cut factory lumber, designed by Wright with affordability in mind, and built by Arthur Richards, which are now known as the American System-Built Homes. This stretch of rare prefabs makes the best stroll in town.
Holler House Lanes
2042 W. Lincoln Ave., Burnham Park
Next-level-kitschy, this family-run bar (think PBR in a bottle) has been open since 1908, headed up by the ninety-plus-year-old matriarch, Marcy Skowronski. The tavern is covered in memorabilia (including autographed bras from past visitors), and downstairs you’ll find its two-lane bowling alley (known as the oldest in the States).
