Description

Kilbourntown House was built in 1844 by Benjamin Church, a carpenter from New York. Church, his wife and 6 children lived in the house, which was originally located in the section of Milwaukee known as Kilbourntown. An excellent example of Greek Revival architecture, the house was saved from destruction in 1938 when it was moved to Estabrook Park and restored as a WPA project. The home contains an outstanding collection of mid-nineteenth century furniture and decorative arts. The home is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is available for tour by school groups.
