It advertises Warner Bros. & Wambold, sole agents for the following plats: Spring Hill, Wauwatosa Park, College Land Co., Inglewood, Oak Grove and Warner's Subdivision No. 1. Wauwatosa is a city in Milwaukee County along the banks of the Menomonee River. In the 1800's the community maintained vast farms throughout the area. Wauwatosa was home to Rev.
