About the McIntosh|Goodrich Mansion

Designed by prolific Chicago architect Horatio R. Wilson | Constructed in 1904

The McIntosh|Goodrich Mansion is one of Milwaukee’s best residential examples of the Neo-Classical Revival style, featuring a symmetrically balanced façade and colossal portico with Corinthian columns. It is constructed of red Galesburg brick and Michigan brownstone, with copper trim and wrought iron railings adorning the exterior. The interior is lavishly decorated with a Tiffany “Magnolia” design window on the stair landing, leather wall coverings, extensive plasterwork and woodwork, leaded glasswork, and gold leaf ceilings.

The ornately-designed residence reflects the transformation of Prospect Avenue in the 1880s, when older structures were replaced by elaborate and extravagant mansions. This area came to be known as Milwaukee’s “Gold Coast,” where some of the city’s wealthiest citizens resided. The McIntosh-Goodrich Mansion was no exception. It was built in 1904 for Charles L. McIntosh, a successful industrialist as well as president of the First National Bank. In 1921, the home was sold to William Osbourne Goodrich and his wife Marie, daughter of beer baron Frederick Pabst.

The McIntosh|Goodrich Mansion is on the National Register of Historic Places and is home to the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music, a non-profit community music school serving more approximately 16,000 students throughout southeastern Wisconsin. Notable alums include Liberace and Oscar-winning composer Justin Hurwitz.
