Fox Point, situated on Milwaukee’s North Shore, was founded in 1926. The name comes from a Dutch settlement that originally settled in that area. A small, quaint village with many trees and wooded areas but also accessible to Lake Michigan and downtown Milwaukee. Fox Point isn’t just a backwoods suburb to be disregarded.
The Mary Nohl Art Environment or locally known as the Mary Nohl House is Fox Point’s biggest attraction. In the 1920s, local artist Mary Nohl turned her parent’s home into an outdoor art exhibition. The property is filled sculptures made from concrete and various found materials. The Kohler Foundation purchased the land after Mary’s passing and preserved her original works. The house is also situated along the beach with a wide view of Lake Michigan making it something you can’t pass up.
