I have been on a motorcycle exactly once in my entire lifetime—and that was as a passenger on a ride around the block. With that said, I still loved the Harley-Davidson Museum in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Harley-Davidson is an American icon with a rich history, a history that unfolds as you navigate through the museum exhibits.
Two years after construction began in 1890, the Frederick Pabst family moved into their home, one of the finest and the last of the great mansions built on what was then Milwaukee’s Grand Avenue. The home almost didn’t survive to see its 100th birthday, but thanks to its next owners and the perseverance of a concerned preservation group, the mansion and many of its original furnishings were saved. We toured the Pabst Mansion in November when it was all decked out in its holiday finery.
