Hales Corners Historically Significant Properties
Hales Corners historically significant properties include many residential, commercial, and civic properties that reflect the Village’s history and heritage. Some date as far back as the 1850s. Many of these historically significant properties are designated by commemorative signs erected by the Hales Corners Historical Society. A walking tour guide to the Village’s historic homes, published in 2007, is available for purchase here.
Our Moment in Time: Capturing the Village in Photos
In 2000 and 2010, the Hales Corners Historical Society created a photographic census of every address in the Village. The goal was to document Village life every ten years. Not only the buildings were documented, but also the people, cars, signs, etc., that appeared in those photographs.
Each photograph was digitized in the JPEG format and was labeled with its address, which enables it to be searched and located in our data base. JPEG copies of a specific property’s photos are available and will be emailed at no charge. If interested, send a request to firstname.lastname@example.org and allow time for the files to be located and sent to you.
