Avalon Theatre Among Top ‘Endangered’ Properties in Milwaukee
MILWAUKEE, WI — Among the ‘Top Ten Endangered Properties’ that the Wisconsin Trust for Historic Preservation notes on its 2004 list is the 1929 Avalon Theatre.
The Avalon, closed since 2000, is threatened with redevelopment as an office. Only its exterior is landmarked and thus protected. The Soldiers Home Historic District and the North Point North and North Point South Historic Districts are also on the Trust’s list.
The Trust is planning a traveling photo exhibit featuring the endangered properties to increase public awareness of the sites. For more information about the list, check out this report from the Milwaukee Sentinel Online.
