As a sponsor of Doors Open Milwaukee, We Energies is proud to showcase some of the incredible, historic features of its 118-year-old headquarters, the Public Service Building (PSB).
Doors Open Milwaukee is a free annual event by Historic Milwaukee during which visitors tour buildings throughout Milwaukee not normally open to the public. This is the first year since the pandemic that the PSB will be open to in-person visitors.
Construction began on the PSB in 1902. It was originally designed as a central station for The Milwaukee Electric Railway and Light Co. (TMER&L), a predecessor of We Energies. Many of the neoclassical details can still be seen from the outside, as well as the replica green doors, where rail cars used to enter and exit the building.
Visitors can stop by this Saturday, Sept. 23, and Sunday, Sept. 24, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For those who can’t attend in person, a virtual reality tour and informational video are posted on the Doors Open website.
