This property has been listed by the United States Department of Interior in the National Register of Historic Places

This Neo-Classical Beaux Arts-influenced building was designed in 1895 by the prominent Milwaukee architectural firm of Ferry and Clas. The design references certain concepts of the "City Beautiful" movement such as downtown urban living, electric street lighting, streetcars, and pedestrian conveniences. These City Beautiful concepts were featured at the World's Columbian Exposition of 1893. In 1903, when the land became available, the Saint James Court Apartments were built here on Milwaukee's main street, Wisconsin Avenue. What exists at this special place on Wisconsin Avenue with its Court of Honor in the boulevard, venerable churches, the heavily-used and monumental Central Library, the popular Wisconsin Club, and the Saint James Court building shows how built examples of City Beautiful principles continue to combine aesthetics and function to create a framework for Society.
