Situated with two industrial sites on to the north and west, this neighborhood became a starting point for hundreds of new immigrants to the city of Waukesha in the early 20th century. Many of the homes and businesses within the street were developed and built for the new immigrant families. It is particularly well remembered as the centers for both the Italian and Hispanic immigrant communities.
