Whether you work, live, or simply enjoy visiting the Historic Third Ward, our neighborhood thrives because of supporters like you. An Historic Third Ward Association membership is the most impactful way to support the beauty and liveliness of the neighborhood.

There’s a reason people use the phrase, “Midwest is best.” Milwaukee, with its picturesque lakefront, thriving culinary scene, neighborly charm, and dynamic history, easily supports that theory. If you want firsthand proof, just spend the day strolling through the beautiful Historic Third Ward.

After only a few minutes within this vibrant historic neighborhood, you begin to experience its charm and excitement: the faint scent of roasted coffee beans, a flash of color in a boutique window, the flowers blossoming in basket-lined streets. Spending time here is easy and good.

Since 1976, Historic Third Ward Association (HTWA) has acted as the pillar of the neighborhood, with its mission to enhance the district as an innovative, livable, and exciting mixed-used district.

On behalf of the Historic Third Ward Association Board of Directors, we urge you to join us in our efforts to enrich, support, and develop the neighborhood. Becoming a member shows you support the work of the HTWA making the Historic Third Ward Milwaukee’s most desirable neighborhood in which to live, work, and entertain.


As a business member, the amenities of working in the Historic Third Ward are innumerable. Positioned at the heart of Milwaukee, your business, clients, and employees can take advantage of the comforts of award-winning restaurants just a short walk away, the ability to support other locally owned businesses and fellow business owners, as well as accessibility to nearby amenities and surrounding neighborhoods. You can choose between a $100 or $250 annual membership. Show your support and become a Corporate member today!

As a resident member, your contribution supports neighborhood programming such as Gallery Night MKE, Christmas in the Ward, and the Third Ward Art Festival. You will be invited to exclusive networking events like the HTWA’s holiday party, spring Annual Meeting (with voting rights), and topical seminars. You will also have the opportunity to participate in our affinity group meetings, and of course, you’ll receive the popular Milwaukee Public Market Tuesday Discount Card.

"The Historic Third Ward Association keeps its focus on local businesses, its residents and culture. This energetic community is filled with great places to eat, shop and live and they do what they can to continually promote it. The membership dues are a small price to pay to be included in all their marketing efforts and events." - Jeanette Dvorak, Owner, Access Boutique - One Stop Accessory Shop
