DESCRIPTION

As late as 1840 this house was the only one in Milwaukee; all around were Native Americans that came to trade with Solomon Juneau, a fur trader. The owner of the house, Martin Stein, moved to the region near the end of the 1830's; Holzlhuber lived opposite this house for four years with the Vintschger family.
