ABRAHAM LINCOLN
Made an address
This tablet as a reminder of that event was erected
under the auspices of the Old Settlers Club of Milwaukee County in 1928

The marker is located on the Marquette University campus, on the southwest corner of the intersection of West Wells Street and North 13th Street, Milwaukee, Wisconsin 53233.

It's easy to miss this marker amongst the shrubbery!

Looking south, with North 13th Street visible to the left.
