Historic Site in Journalism
Solomon Juneau
Solomon Juneau founded the Milwaukee Sentinel in 1837. A fur trader and the founder of Milwaukee, Juneau was also the city's first mayor. In 1987, the Sentinel marked its 150th Anniversary and the 25th Anniversary of its operation by Journal Communications. The Sentinel is the oldest newspaper in Wisconsin and one of the oldest continuing businesses in the state. The tradition of vigorous responsible news reporting and public service has earned The Sentinel an important place in the history of Wisconsin journalism.
The marker is affixed to the facade of the west side of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel building, and is accessible from northbound North 4th Street, north of its intersection with West Kilbourn Avenue, at or near 918 North 4th Street, Milwaukee, Wisconsin 53203.

The plaque (visible in the center) is located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
