Arson delayed opening of new Wauwatosa West building

TosaConnection mastheadThe second installment of my Tosa Connection column focusing on some aspect of my hometown’s past has been published.

I chose to write about the 1969 arson that delayed the opening of the new (and current) Wauwatosa West building for a year. See the story in its entirety here.

The magazine, which was originally  planned to publish three times a year, has seen such a tremendous reception that the production schedule has already been increased to five times a year. And the second edition has a bunch more pages than the initial issue.

If you live or work in Wauwatosa, or really close by, chances are really good the magazine has been mailed to you free of charge. Make sure to patronize the advertisers, who make the product possible, and let them know you saw their ad in Tosa Connection.

If you don’t live in those areas, or missed the magazine in your mail, check out the website here.

Look for issues each odd-numbered month except July. That would be January, March, May, September and November.

If you have any ideas on topics I can write about for future issues, just email me at
