Building History Detail
Madonna di Pompeii Church

The cornerstone of the "Little Pink Church" was laid on October 8, 1904. The church was the center of the Italian community when this area of the third ward was a dense and poor residential district. This was the first building designated as a landmark by the Milwaukee Landmarks Commission which didn't help it survive freeway construction. A memorial plaque to the church along with some salvaged pieces were placed under the freeway across from where the church was located on July 31, 1977.
