Regarding O.R. Pieper Co. Grocers. The O.R. Pieper Co. commissioned architects Ringer & Son to design this grocery warehouse in 1907. Recently renovated and renamed the Broadway Theatre Center, the building is now the home of The Skylight Theater, Renaissance Theatreworks and the Milwaukee Chamber Theatre. The current design of its main auditorium is based on the style of a turn-of-the-century European opera house. A law firm, as well as other performing arts groups occupy the office spaces in the building. - Historic Third Ward Walking Tour brochure
