Milwaukee, Wisconsin Part II

The city of Milwaukee went through a street name and numbering change after the Junghans family left the city. It can be quite cumbersome figuring out the present street address without being in the city and having some of the old maps.

I do not know what street numbers were assigned to 467 4th Street or 696 Hubbard Street .

1173 5th Street is now 2919 N 5th
1076 11th Street is now 2748 N 11th
1059 2nd Street is now 2723 2nd





Below is the plat map showing 467 4th Street (red arrow) which is just a half block south of the German Reform Church where Paul and Wilhelminia were married (black arrow) in the 1880's:



I did not take a photo of the present day location of 467 4th Street when I was there in 2007.



Below is a current map showing Hubbard street:
