The Pabst Archives was founded in 1994 in order to collect and preserve archival and manuscript materials pertaining to Pabst related topics, as well as material associated with other historic Milwaukee macrobrewers and Milwaukee’s Victorian architecture and society. The collection features over 5,000 photographs ranging from 1885 to the present, the majority of which capture a broad spectrum of social history experienced by one family.  These photographs have been collected from around the world and deposited with Captain Frederick Pabst Mansion, Inc. for scholarly research and exhibitions.
