Annual Recognition Awards

For 60 years, the Milwaukee County Historical Society has honored individuals, community organizations and business that have worked diligently to preserve and promote local history.

In 2003, in recognition of our 50th award program, the Society added a new award category, Anniversary Accolades, noting the 50th, 75th, 100th, 125th and 150th anniversaries of local businesses, organizations, schools and universities.

Our celebration dinner takes place each spring. Nominations for awards are taken throughout the year, and each year’s slate of recipients are approved by the Board of Directors.

If you would like to nominate an individual or organization for one of the Milwaukee County Historical Society’s annual awards, please submit a letter or e-mail describing the accomplishments or contributions, which you feel should be recognized.
