Deutsches Haus Milwaukee?

An old question dating back to the 1930s
Presumably, Goethe Haus' (now Goethe House-Wisconsin) 30 years of residency at the Milwaukee Public Library - Central Branch was supposed to be the answer?

But that residency never produced a single project related to Milwaukee's historic German immigrant community; not with the Milwaukee Public Library, nor with the Milwaukee County Genealogical Society - another group still in residence at the downtown library.

It's said that you can sometimes still hear the Admin. ghosts of the three groups: MPL, MCGS, and Goethe House, hissing & spitting at each other if you walk the halls of the old library building. Others say that it's just the steam heat.
