Wauwatosa's earliest commerce and architecture are vital aspects of its historical character.
The Little Red Store is an important survivor from part of Wauwatosa's earliest commerical history, having served throughout the years as a dwelling, the oldest remaining post office building in Milwaukee County, a railroad station, general store, library, harness shop, grocery, plumbing shop, and oil company. Many of the trades the building sheltered are things of the past that deserve to be commemorated for their contributions to the development of Wauwatosa.
