The Milwaukee Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse is owned by the GSA General Services Agency. The Richardson Romanesque building was designed by Willoughby J. Edbrooke, Supervising Architect of the U.S. Treasury Department and constructed in 1889. Additions were constructed in 1929-1932 and 1940. From 1989 to 1996 the interior was restored and adapted to meet modern needs. It has been designated as a Milwaukee City Landmark since 1972 and was added to the National Register of Historic places in 1973.
