Regarding Young Saddlery Company Addition. In 1894, Young Saddlery Co., a manufacturer and wholesaler of saddles and leather, contracted to construct this building. In 1909 they claimed to be one of the state's largest saddlery houses, enjoying international and domestic trade. In 1924, Architects Tharinger & Bruecker designed the four story loft which was added to the north. Renamed The Saddlery in 1996, extensive remodeling has taken place, including development of the Third Ward's first Riverwalk section. The Milwaukee Ale House occupies the first floor with offices on the upper levels.
