Long Description:
Milwaukee Turner Hall, built in 1882, is among the few surviving 19th-century historic buildings associated with the American Turners, a very influential organization of German Americans. The last Turner clubhouse in Milwaukee, the "German Athens" of America, it exemplifies the major place and multi-faceted role the Milwaukee Turners have held in this national organization. The building also represents the Milwaukee Turners' unheralded role in political reform from the antislavery movement in the 1850s through the era of progressive municipal reform.
