As one of only a handful of homes on peaceful Crooked Lake in Summit and sitting on over nineteen acres surrounded by Crooked Lake, the Bark River and nature areas, this house more than exceeds that goal.

The Architectural Record, March, 1905, highlighted the work of Alexander C. Eschweiler and described the Clarence Rudolph Falk House,“…as a happy example of the shingled cottage.” Clarence Falk and his wife Margaret Sawyer Falk chose Eschweiler to design the home in 1902 for the princely sum of $11,000. One Hundred and fifteen years later, this two and one-half story home with 6,733-square-feet of living space and located at 2239 North Terrace Avenue, has been chosen as the 20th Anniversary, 2017, Wisconsin Breast Cancer Showhouse.

room closed for several days before Christmas morning. In 1921, Clarence and Margaret and their three daughters embarked on a tour of Africa and Europe. While in Egypt, the Falks witnessed the opening of King Tut’s tomb and while in France and Belgium, visited World War I battlefields. Clarence Falk served in World War I where his passion for aviation was fostered. After the war, he served on several committees investigating the feasibility of commercial aviation in the United States and was active in several attempts to make Milwaukee an aviation manufacturing center. He also structured a course on aviation offered at the Milwaukee School of Engineering. Because of his aviation pioneering, he developed a close friendship with Charles Lindberg. As part of Lindberg’s victory tour of the United States in 1928, the Falks hosted Mr. Lindberg for dinner in their home and also relaxed with the Falks at their Apple Tree Farm in River Hills. The Falks civic and cultural contributions to Milwaukee were legendary. They were instrumental in bringing the Chicago Symphony Orchestra to Milwaukee for several performances each year. They were members

S h ow h o u se F o r A C u r e and the Helen Keller Foundation. Margaret Falk continued to enjoy the charming home after Clarence Falk passed away in 1937 at the age of 67, selling it to Bauer and Hazel Bullinger in 1950. The Bullingers raised two daughters and a son in the home. Bauer Bullinger was a member of the Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and American Bar Associations and was the author of “Wisconsin Inheritance, Gift, Estate and Emergency Tax Law”, for many years a widely used tax manual. The Bullingers were active members of the Milwaukee Art Center and champions of the visual arts community. Bauer Bullinger died in 1968. Hazel Bullinger remained on Terrace Avenue until 1971 when she sold the home to James and Geraldine Arnold. When discussing the sale of the home, Mrs. Bullinger expressed a desire that the home be sold to “someone with children.” Jim and Gerry Arnold were highly qualified to meet her request – they had eight children ages 2 to 17. Jim, from Brooklyn, NY, and Gerry from Sacramento, CA, met in the middle of the country at Marquette University, where they both majored in Journalism. She worked as a journalist in Sacramento and Washington, D.C. and later at St. Mary’s Hospital. Jim became a Professor of Journalism at Marquette, retiring in 1996, and now enjoys Professor Emeritus status. He wrote for the Catholic Herald Citizen and reviewed movies for the Milwaukee Journal. As movie buffs, the Arnolds hosted many Oscar night parties. The most memorable was in 1977, the same night Marquette won the Men’s NCAA Basketball Tournament. The Arnold family also enjoyed watching the July 4th fireworks and the U.S.

River’s End Gallery Judy Munro’s paintings, direct and intuitive, are bold, rich and beautifully textured explorations of the emotive qualities of color and light. Her landscapes and cityscapes, at first glance based in impressionism, incorporate an expressionistic edge that often moves into abstraction. The result is an astonishingly varied body of work that skillfully blends the viewpoints of all three genres. With over twenty of Judy Munro’s most recent works on display, River’s End Gallery has a diverse and impressive collection for you to enjoy.

Mequon

Estate

In 1927, Frank Weyenberg, owner of predecessor company to Weyco Shoe Company, and his wife wanted to build a home in the country. They chose a beautiful hill-site, the highest point in Ozaukee County, elevation 980-feet. Ninety years later, their Mequon home still sits there now surrounded by 29 estate homes on what is now called Wey Acres. Backing up to the original Weyenberg estate is one of most admired homes and lushly landscaped lots in Mequon. Built in 1987, this three-story French country chateau is on the market for the first time. It has 14 rooms including five bedrooms and 5-1/2 baths in 6,800-square-feet. The 1.6-acre site features a secluded back yard and is only a “par 4” from North Shore Country Club. With a backdrop of 75foot trees, the property has meticulously maintained landscaping. French architecture is rare in Mequon. The home was designed by the owners who incorporated some interior art deco details inspired by French-style homes of the 1920-30s period. Custom millwork and elegantly paneled library make this home formal yet comfortable for a large family, who will also enjoy the lower level with a home theatre, pool room, fitness area, and full bath with steam-bath.
