When my father purchased The Pfister Hotel in 1963, he had a vision of returning The Pfister Hotel to its original splendor and position in the community. Not the least of this endeavor was his commitment to restoring and building The Pfister’s marvelous art collection, often called the largest collection of Victorian art of any hotel in the world. Numbering well over 80 pieces, it remains on display throughout the public areas of this historic hotel. In 1993, we entered the second century of The Pfister’s life and in a few short years we will enter a
new millennium. I am delighted that we can look forward to sharing this treasured collection with Milwaukeeans, visitors to our city, and our hotel guests. Enjoy!
