Built in 1905 by Eau Claire inventors A.E. and Georgiana White who started their business, White Machine Works, there and raised a family this Queen Anne Revival House has many unique and individual touches in both architectural ornament and construction methods.  Today, Galaudet Gallery fine art installs art exhibits often including the house in these exhibits.  Current owner Michael Milewski is working on restoring this gem for the next 100 years and beyond. The Milewski Mansion continues making history within it--a testament to the intellectual, hard-working and artistic sensibilities that have been a longstanding part of the Milewski and Galaudet families as well as Eau Claire.

An historic property lends its glory to us "in its deep sense of voicefulness, or stern watching, of mysterious sympathy which we feel in walls that have long been washed by the passing waves of humanity."
--John Ruskin
