Long Description:
The Kneeland-Walker House and carriage house sit on a 1.5 acre site in Wauwatosa. Norman L. Kneeland was involved in early government and this was his "country home". In 1917 it was purchased by Emery L. Walker, an engineer and inventor who was involved in paper container manufacturing.

The Kneeland-Walker House is now being used for various educational programs, preservation work, archival storage, artifact displays, and community events. This treasure stands as one of Wauwatosa’s greatest community assets.
