Cedarburg in Ozaukee County, Wisconsin — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
The last remaining turner hall of its type in the United States, it served as a combination meeting place and gymnasium for members of the Hamilton "Turnverein" society for more than twenty years. When the society disbanded, the building saw use as a shoe factory and later a cider mill; however, neither use proved to be economically feasible and the building fell into disrepair.
The Turnhalle was entered on the National Register of Historic Places on July 1, 1976. It was donated to the Town of Cedarburg and the Cedarburg Landmark Preservation Society by Adelaide B. Miller. Funds for restoration were provided by a combination of donations from local citizens and a matching grant from the National Park Service obtained throug the State Historical Society of Wisconsin.
