100 Years of "Shorewood" 1917-2017
The name of our community was changed from “East Milwaukee” to “Shorewood” in 1917, a name village leaders thought was a better fit for the tree lined plateau along Lake Michigan.

A self-guided "Walking/Biking/Riding Tour" was developed by the Historical Society to help tour-takers visualize life in Shorewood in 1916. Paper copies of the tour are available in the Shorewood Village Hall at Customer Service.
