firehouse at 407 N. Hawley Rd. into an event space, Evenement event planning owner Janelle Meyer-Brown has opened Story Hill FireHouse.
Evenement plans to create space in its new home, at 407 N. Hawley Rd. - one of five bungalow firehouses - to host weekend weddings and breakfast and lunch business meetings during the week.
Inside one of the five bungalow style firehouses built in the 1920s by Milwaukee architect Charles Malig, there is a quiet treasure. The Milwaukee Fire Education Center and Museum, 1615 W. Oklahoma Ave., isn't exactly a secret, but considering the passion for the history of firefighting that burns in the folks that maintain and grow it, it almost feels like it.
