History of The Mansion

Where We Began

Where We Began

The mansion’s legacy began on a bluff overlooking Lake Michigan, home to Robert C. Spenser, the founder of Spencerian Business College, in 1903. By 1932 the mansion was leased to the Wisconsin College of Music free of charge until 1948, when the school purchased the building for $50,000. Upon a recommendation by Milwaukee’s Historic Preservation Commission, the building was declared a historic landmark by the City of Milwaukee Common Council on December 20, 1985.
