About the Building

In 2018, this historic Eschweiler designed building became home to Hands in Harmony Piano Studio. This organization provides over 200 budding musicians access to quality piano instruction with 9 instructors, 5 piano studios, a performance space and a charming waiting area. All in a home-like environment in the heart of the city. Hands in Harmony’s mission is to bring quality one-one-one piano instruction by partnering with local schools, as well as providing lessons at a centrally located “Music Hub”. Come enjoy a historical tour of architecture and music, complete with student performances and other unique Near West Side community partners.

Built for Oscar F. Zinn (a possible descendant of malt tycoon Adolf Zinn) in 1926 by Milwaukee architect Alexander Eschweiler. The home’s architectural style is Mediterranean Revival inspired with a Balloon Frame structural system. This design became increasingly popular in the United States in the early 20th century. This distinguishes the building from other Victorian mansions built for Milwaukee’s German elite. Highland Boulevard was at that time referred to as “Sauerkraut Boulevard”.

Buildings constructed using Mediterranean architecture have a romantic allure, arched windows and doors, earthen roof tiles, stucco walls, and ornamental detailing. All of which can be seen here today.

Other buildings that reflect Eschweiler’s design talent include the John Mariner Building (now the Hotel Metro on Mason) and the Charles Allis House (now the Charles Allis Art Museum on Prospect). He also designed Milwaukee’s quirky pagoda filling stations, only a few of which remain today.

The O.F. Zinn house has seen many seasons of change in its uses serving as administrative offices for Havenwood Nursing Center, satellite offices for Forest County Potawatomi Government Departments as well as a substation for Milwaukee Police Department District Three, and remains part of the FC Potawatomi Community’s WGEMA Campus.
