Cropped image of map of Milwaukee from the Milwaukee Municipal Research Center Maps collection

This collection features maps housed at the City of Milwaukee’s official records center and document repository, the Milwaukee Municipal Research Center (MRC), located in the basement level of the Zeidler Municipal Building, 841 N. Broadway. The majority of the materials here were created by city departments. Subject areas include the city’s historic geographical boundaries and annexations, current and former aldermanic districts (known as wards prior to 1972), Census tracts, neighborhoods, land use, redevelopment planning, and transportation. All maps are also available for use on site at the MRC. Hours are 8:00 am – 4:45 pm, Monday-Friday.
