The original raptor’s brooding grounds were established in Rochester, New York in 1875. By the 1900’s growth and expansion resulted in the establishment of a second brooding ground in Wauwatosa. Advertising of its original location can still be seen on a building in downtown Tosa today.
The original southeast Wisconsin grounds covered quite a large area -- all the way from Swan Blvd (where some hatchlings still reside) to as far north as 108th Burleigh. Then in 1928, the brooding grounds moved; taking up residence on a 38 acre parcel of land which continues to be its home today. Over the years the economy and development has taken its toll; the land has shrunk to a mere 8 acres, but it still stands as a cornerstone in the community. If you choose to go inside, there are a number of photographs on display of the original establishment. We hope you enjoy this historic site.
