Posted on July 24, 2017

Historic Brewers Hill is participating in HaRUNbee – a 5K Walk/Run for Healthy Birth Outcomes designed to raise awareness and to prevent infant mortality.  To join the Historic Brewers Hill team, register here:

Organized by the Milwaukee Lifecourse Initiative for Healthy Families (LIHF), the mission of the HaRUNbee Walk/Run is to promote wellness by encouraging families to stay healthy and fit, both mentally and physically. We want to generate engagement of the community by bringing all ages and all races together internally as well as surrounding neighborhoods outside the Harambee community for a 5K Walk/Run.

  • The walk/run will take place as a part of Bronzeville Week.
  • Participants are welcome to walk or run.
  • Top finishers will receive prizes.
  • Babies in strollers are welcome!

HBHA’s Gateway Signage Phase 2 is Here!

Posted on April 24, 2017


If you pass by the corner of Vine & Palmer, you will see the prototype Historic Brewers Hill signs. These signs represent the 2nd Phase of our Gateway Signage Campaign and will contribute to the branding of our neighborhood — so that all who pass through know they are not only in Brewers Hill, but are in an historic neighborhood.

If you haven’t seen the 2 signs (each consisting of a “topper” above the street sign and a “banner” below the street sign) make sure you swing by in the next few days – voting will begin on Monday, May 1st! Take a look at them from your car, from the sidewalk, during the day and after dark. Below is a picture of the signs – one is located at the SE corner and the other at the SW corner.

You will see 2 differences in the two signs: 1) a font difference on each sign and 2) on each sign, one side is a standard-reflective grade and the other side is construction-reflective grade.

Step 1: HBHA Members Will Choose Which Sign Goes Up Across the BH

HBHA members will receive an email on Monday, May 1st with instructions to vote on which sign (the font and reflectivity) we should choose to go up at intersections throughout our neighborhood. HBHA members: please watch for this email! If you aren’t a member, become an HBHA member today! It’s easy, affordable, and comes with many benefits! Again, in order to vote you must be a paid HBHA member.

Step 2: Signs Go Up!

To get us across the finish line, we need to raise an additional $3,500 for the fabrication, installation, & maintenance of the signs. If you would like to donate today, please go to paypal and send your tax-deductible donation to! Other ways to donate, include the following:
