Preserving History

Building with Ghost Signs on it

Milwaukee’s Historic Third Ward is covered with faded, hand-painted billboards from a bygone era.

Protected by the historic registry, these ghost signs must remain in their natural state until they disappear completely. The Augmented History Project was created to preserve the rich history and artistry of these billboards through a pioneering use of augmented history.
