Court of Honor Restoration

COURT OF HONOR RESTORATION PROJECT

 Help us Restore Three Important Local Sculptures

At the top of a slight hill on West Wisconsin Avenue in downtown Milwaukee, just east of I-43, lies one of Milwaukee’s key cultural spaces. It is home to several important local monuments, including a bronze woman and child at the feet of George Washington dedicated in 1885. The boulevard became known as the Court of Honor after the erection of the bronze Civil War monument, the “Victorious Charge” in 1898. Later the area gained even more significance with the addition of a 65 foot stone column in 1900 and another bronze monument to a Spanish American War Hero in 1932.
