The Villa Filomena is located in the gracious east side neighborhood of downtown Milwaukee. The building was built in 1874, by architect Edward Townsend Mix, as the family residence for Great Lakes Captain Robert Patrick Fitzgerald. It is a study in symmetry. The double arched windows, the arched doorway, the pillars supporting the porch and the bracketed overhang combine to give the house an air of balance and harmony. The Villa Filomena is now a family run business and has specialized in events since 2004.
Villa Filomena has been renovated as an event destination while maintaining the historic beauty and charm of the original mansion. The villa Filomena is a full service event facility which includes the following amenities:
“My husband and I had our wedding at Villa Filomena this past May and it was everything that I could have ever wanted. The venue is gorgeous with historic details and a warm, inviting atmosphere. It was perfect for us!”
