Thank you for your ongoing generous support!

In 2010, the Wauwatosa Historical Society has replaced the 50-year-old cedar roof on its headquarters, the 1890 Victorian Kneeland-Walker House. 

Research Library Compromised 

In 2010 the Wauwatosa Historical Society discovered dampness and water stains in the ceiling areas of the Judith A. Simonsen Research Library, all of our research and archival materials were moved for safe keeping to different areas of the House, temporarily closing the Judith A. Simonsen Research Library to the public. The library re-opened in January of 2011 with expanded hours.

Project Costs

The total cost of this project was $152,000 which included copper valleys and gutters.

F.J.A. Christiansen Roofing Company completed work in October of 2010, providing the Kneeland-Walker House and Coach House with an award-winning, historically accurate, well-executed new cedar roofs and copper gutters that will last for many years to come.
