Wauwatosa is one of Wisconsin’s oldest towns and its character flows through  its historic downtown, along its winding streets and into its craftsman and tudor-style homes.  In addition to its small-town quaintness, Wauwatosa offers easy access to Interstate 94, and several shopping areas including Mayfair Mall.  It’s home to the Milwaukee County’s Regional Medical Center, which includes the Medical College of Wisconsin, the Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, and Froedtert Hospital, one of two level-one trauma centers in the state.

Wauwatosa is known for several historically and architecturally significant buildings including the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. The Washington Highlands Historic District, a residential neighborhood designed in 1916, was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1989.  The Menomonee Valley provides easy-access to the Niagara Escarpment endowing the city with numerous cream-colored brick buildings and limestone foundations, enhancing its historic look.
