The Mitchell Building is located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1973.[1]

History[edit]

The building was constructed by U.S. Representative Alexander Mitchell, it housed the Marine Bank from the time of its construction until 1930. The property is presumed to have once been the site of the residence of Solomon Juneau,[2] who helped to found Milwaukee and served as its first mayor; the Mitchell Building is adjacent to the Mackie Building, which was also built by Mitchell, designed by E. Townsend Mix and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
