Historic Concordia Neighbors, Inc (HCNI) is a 501c3 nonprofit organization of home owners, residents and businesses in or near the Historic Concordia neighborhood of Milwaukee.
Many of Historic Concordia’s great mansions were lost to the wrecking ball in the 50s, 60s and 70s. That’s why preservation is one of the main missions of Historic Concordia Neighbors, Inc. Happily, some neighborhood residents in the mid 80s decided to stop the decline, forming Historic Concordia Neighbors, Inc. (HCNI). The organization moved to set borders for a historically designated area and, with the help of the City of Milwaukee’s Office of Historic Preservation, began working with owners to repair, restore and increase the value of properties. The Concordia Neighborhood is now listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
Historic Concordia was designated as The Milwaukee Bed and Breakfast District in 2000. Several mansions have been restored and opened as B&B’s
But HCNI is more than just loving old houses. People look out for one another here. The community is growing stronger as bonds between neighbors have strengthened. Historic Concordia runs home tours to educate the public, and stays active to make sure that landlords and homeowners are taking care of property. And we’re making our neighborhood a better place through community service projects.
We’re staying right here, but our neighborhood is really going places. Come in. Look around. Talk to a neighbor and learn a little about us.
