Milwaukee County Stadium postcard from 1953.
Several locations around the city, including the Wisconsin State Fair Park in West Allis were considered before the city settled on the defunct site of the Story Quarry, on the west side of Milwaukee near the Story Hill neighborhood. County Stadium was the first ballpark in the United States financed with public funds.
Construction began in October 1950 and, hampered by steel shortages during the Korean War, was completed in 1953, just in-time for the Milwaukee Braves debut season.
