The Schuster Mansion is a rare offering and one of the few remaining stately homes to grace Milwaukee's near west side. Built in 1891 by George J. Schuster, a wealthy tobacco industrialist and designed by the prominent architectural firm of Crane and Barkhausen, this historic gem exhibits stunning and unique elements of the German Renaissance Revival style. Standing three stories high, constructed of red sandstone, red brick, and rich terra cotta accents, the mansion’s commanding presence speaks to the grandeur of days past. Known as “The Wells Street Red Castle”, no two elevations are alike, and the roof line is picturesque against the skyline with conical turrets, gables, and towering ornamental chimneys.
