History

I am a Milwaukee landmark


1451 Renaissance Place was designed by renowned American architect Solon Spencer Beman. After seven years of construction, it was opened as a Christian Science church in 1909, and remained so for almost 80 years.

In the 1980s, the building was purchased from the church and underwent a major renovation. The name 1451 Renaissance Place was coined to reflect the structure’s new beginning. The goal of the renovation was to maintain the building’s original splendor, while bringing it in line with contemporary needs. The original woodwork, vaulted ceiling, plaster, moldings, leaded-glass windows and marble staircase were painstakingly preserved and lovingly restored.

Today, 1451 Renaissance Place is one of Milwaukee’s most sought-after gathering places, a stunning example of turn-of-the-century design and craftsmanship. No other venue offers the feel, the sound, and the splendor.
