MILWAUKEE — I want to connect the dots of the neighborhoods and communities that make Milwaukee, Milwaukee.
I met with Antonio Butts, Executive Director of Walnut Way Conservation, to learn about Lindsay Heights, the neighborhood he calls home.
For more than 150 years, this area has been a historic African American neighborhood and like many areas of the city, it’s had its problems. But today the Lindsay Heights neighborhood is making a comeback.
From owner-occupied homes and staple businesses like Jake’s Deli and Coffee Makes You Black to newer developments like Walnut Way Conservation Corp. and the Innovation & Wellness Commons, these residents are reclaiming and transforming this historic neighborhood.
