A Vivid Photographic History of our Community

First called Hart’s Mills, after its founder Charles Hart who settled here in 1835, early Wauwatosa resembled a New England village, complete with a commons. Its first pioneers were Yankees and New Yorkers, joined by Germans who would mold the growing community. View images from the Society’s own extensive collections and privately owned photos, all with accompanying captions, which chronicle the saga of Wauwatosa’s people and its past.
