This historic structure was built in 1885 as the purifying house for the Milwaukee Gas and Light Company. It housed the offices, workshop, and stables for the crews responsible for lighting and maintaining the gas street lamps throughout the city. After being occupied by the Louis Hoffman Co. until 1999, the Milwaukee Institute for Art and Design (MIAD) purchased the building for exhibit and gallery space. In 2005 we purchased and completely renovated and updated the entire building and property.
