New Berlin — The New Berlin Landmarks Commission will hold hearings on four potential city landmarks at 6:30 p.m. Feb. 20.
One is Holy Apostles Parish and cemetery, 16000 W. National Ave. The church is believed to be the first Catholic church in the city.
A hearing also will be held on the New Berlin Center Cemetery at 180th Street and National Avenue, believed to be the oldest in the city. It is where the bones of the man credited with giving New Berlin its name are laid. The burial ground had its first recorded burial in 1841.
Another hearing is slated for the Sunnyside Cemetery at Racine Avenue and Interstate 43. It's the resting place of the pioneer Yankee pastor who could be called the Father of Prospect Hill, a pioneer crossroads community where the New Berlin Historical Park is located. The first recorded burial was in 1842, but an infant was laid to rest at Sunnyside the year before.
The fourth site is the William and Elizabeth Koeppen Home, 16230 W. National Ave.
