|In 1998, the Wauwatosa Historical Society (WHS) sponsored the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) nomination for the Milwaukee County School of Agriculture and Domestic Economy buildings, commonly known as "the Eschweiler Buildings." Since its NRHP designation, WHS has actively encouraged the preservation and reuse of these historic structures located at the northwest corner of the County Grounds. Most recently, the UW-Milwaukee Real Estate Foundation purchased this land from Milwaukee County and is working with a developer for the site.WHS continues to advocate for the adaptive reuse of these buildings as the focal point of any potential development.
