To celebrate the new Milwaukee County Historical Society exhibit, How Dry I Am: Prohibition Milwaukee, and Milwaukee’s Inaugural Museum Week, we invite Historian John Gurda to guide us through Prohibition Milwaukee.

As America’s beer capital, Milwaukee was more severely impacted by Prohibition than most cities. The long national drought shut down a major industry, deprived the city of both jobs and tax revenue, and forced ordinary citizens to the wrong side of the law. The fourteen-year dry spell was by turns infuriating, tragic, and hilarious, and John Gurda will cover all its dimensions in his recounting of the “noble experiment.” Come early to view the Milwaukee County Historical Society’s new exhibit, How Dry I Am: Prohibition Milwaukee.

Event is free to attend.
