By dredge and fill,
the Menomonee Valley
offered river and rail access
to Milwaukee industry.
The "West Milwaukee" railroad shops
dominated the end of the valley,
and were the city's larger employer.

The marker is located along the Hank Aaron Trail, adjacent to westbound West Canal Street, west of its intersection with West Roundhouse Road, Milwaukee, Wisconsin 53208.

The boulder is included in the Merrill Park Eight Boulders and a Pavilion Tour.

Looking north -- a gorgeous summer day in Milwaukee!

Looking east along the Hank Aaron Trail,
with West Canal Street to the right.
