The home is located in the historic 1920s Garden Homes neighborhood, a planned community of bungalow and Tudor style homes. The neighborhood has a unique history. Up until the 1920s, the area that was a sparsely populated rural patch of acreage with just a few widely-spaced farms owned by German immigrants. The original fan-shaped Garden Homes housing project was an experimental community with small homes on small lots, tree-lined streets, and a boulevard-like green park, which still exists today. Every resident owned shares in the neighborhood. The homes were built and sold at cost to avoid making profits.
According to neighborhoodsinmilwaukee.org:
In more recent years the recession and the waves of foreclosures from tax delinquencies resulted in many residents just leaving their homes in Garden Homes. But work is being done to restore the beauty and dignity of Garden Homes. The neighborhood was placed on the National Register of Historic places in the 1980s, but it was not declared a historic district in Milwaukee until 2013 when residents organized to avoid the razing of many homes. Historic designation sometimes creates funding possibilities, such as tax credits for home improvement. In addition, the City of Milwaukee, the Northwest Side Community Development Corporation, PNC Bank, and the Wisconsin Housing and Economic Development Authority are working on restoring sections of Garden Homes. Today most of the Germans have left the area.
