Christian Wahl (1829 to 1901)

Section 40, Lot 24

Wahl took a special interest in the development of city parks. In 1889, he joined a group of prominent Milwaukeeans who successfully lobbied for passage of a state law enabling the city to acquire land for parks. Some of the best known parks are Lake, Washington and Mitchell. A boulevard system to connect the parks and construction of a lakefront roadway were envisioned.
