Tour 3 A
Milwaukee -- Racine -- Kenosha -- Illinois Line; 43.9 m. State 42.

Chicago ­ North Western Ry., Chicago & North Shore Line, and Milwaukee Electric Ry. and Transit Co. parallel route. Cement-paved roadbed. City accommodations.

Following the Green Bay-Chicago military road of the 1830's, State 42, a continuation of the lakeshore route of US 141, directly connects the chief industrial section of Wisconsin with Chicago, Illinois.

MILWAUKEE, 0 m. (592 alt., 578,249 pop.) (see Milwaukee).

Milwaukee is at the junction with US 41 (see Tour 2), US 141 (see Tour 3), and US 18 (see Tour 23).

From the junction with US 141 at E. State and Milwaukee Sts., State 42 runs south on Milwaukee Ave., following a twisting course through an older factory and warehouse district. At 4.6 m. is (L) the SOUTH SHORE PARK with its bathing beach. ST. MARY'S ACADEMY (R), 5.5 m., was founded in 1904 by The Sisters of St. Francis of Assisi. The present buildings, which include the original structure, with a new wing added in 1921, and a large building erected in 1930, stand on a site overlooking Lake Michigan. St. Mary's is both a day and boarding school; the high school enrollment is about 500, the grade department 60. Immediately adjoining is ST. FRANCIS SEMINARY, built in 1856 on a wooded, 100-acre tract overlooking Lake Michigan. This seminary serves as a training school for priests; its former rector, the Rev. Francis J. Haas, has gained national recognition as a mediator in recent labor disputes. Next to the seminary are the ruins of the ST. AEMILIANUS ORPHAN ASYLUM, destroyed by fire in 1930. St. Peter's Church, the first Roman Catholic Church in Milwaukee ( 1839), has recently been removed to the seminary grounds.

The Township of Lake, 5.6 m., one of the richest in the United States, contains the gigantic LAKESIDE POWER PLANT. According to law, a certain proportion of the State taxes paid by this utility are returned to the town, which since 1930 has paid all the State and county taxes of its 9,000 inhabitants out of surplus funds, the only charges upon the latter being taxes levied by school districts and assessments made by the city of Milwaukee for sewage disposal.

State 42 winds southward a few rods from the lakesbore. From the water level, the land rises in two broad terraces, marking the shore line of former Glacial Lake Chicago, which once covered all of this flat country (see Natural Setting).

CUDAHY, 7.4 m. (714 alt., 10,631 pop.), was founded by Patrick
