770 N Jefferson St, Milwaukee, WI | Directions 5320243.040518 -87.905332
Neighborhoods: Juneau Town
Nowadays dance fans bop outside a multitude of clubs in Milwaukee's most historic neighborhood.
East Town was home to the city's first settlers. After flocking to Milwaukee for industrial jobs, the mishmash of residents built sturdy houses from bricks and stones. The homes still stand but, when the sun goes down, you'll find that the inhabitants of old have given way to club kids, DJs and restaurateurs.
What to See
East Town's epicenter, St. John's Cathedral, rises majestically from Cathedral Square. Built in 1847, St. John's is the oldest church in the state. Scads of stores surround the square, providing an excellent excuse for visiting the beautiful cathedral.
When to Go
The grassy square plays host to numerous events throughout the Summer and Fall, including a Farmer's Market on Saturday mornings and Jazz in the Park from June through October.
