Today marks the 100th anniversary of the opening of the original Bucyrus Club. About seven months from today, it will be be reborn.
Work is well underway on the project at 12th and Milwaukee Avenues, a combination banquet center and museum that will bring together our proud past and promising future to create a unique regional destination and catalyst for growth in our city center.
OnMilwaukee.com’s Bobby Tanzilo authored a terrific “Urban Spelunking” story about the project today.
Thank to you to the Bucyrus Foundation, Skyline Catering and the South Milwaukee Industrial Museum for their partnership on this project, and to Zimmerman Architectural Studios and CG Schmidt for bringing this vision to life. You can actually book the space right now here: https://bucyrusclub.com/
From the story: “You’d be hard pressed to find a South Milwaukee family that didn’t celebrate a wedding or a birthday, or attend a high school reunion or an awards ceremony, or even just eat a fish fry and play pinochle there. ‘The Club’ was a major focus of South Milwaukee social life for decades.”
It will be again. Much more to come in 2021!
