A true architectural masterpiece, the Schuster Mansion is a rare offering and one of the few remaining stately homes to grace Milwaukee’s near west side. Built in 1891 by George J. Schuster, a wealthy tobacco industrialist, designed by the prominent architectural firm of Crane and Barkhausen this beauty exhibits stunning and unique elements of the German Renaissance Revival style. Standing three stories high, constructed of red sandstone, red brick and rich red terra cotta accents, the mansion’s commanding presence speaks to the grandeur of days past. Known as “Wells Street’s Red Castle”, no two elevations are alike, the roofline is picturesque against the skyline with conical turrets, gables & towering ornamental chimneys. The artistry and craftsmanship are equally magnificent at the interior of this Historic Home. Revel in period appointments, high ceilings, intricate woodwork, pocket doors & character at every turn.
