Milwaukee's Favorite Granny Joins Twitter

Since 1965 visitors have walked the Streets of Old Milwaukee at the Milwaukee Public Museum to say hello to 'Granny'. 

As stated on the Museum's website, \"Museum goers have...paid their respects to Granny patiently rocking on the front porch of one of two residences to grace the Streets of Old Milwaukee.\"

2015 marks the 50th anniversary of the opening of Streets of Old Milwaukee. As a result, the whole exhibit is getting a face lift and there to witness it all and tweet out her thoughts is Granny.

Granny first tweeted on July 28th:

*tap tap tap* Is this thing on? Oh dear... #frontporchpost #mke #milwaukee #museums #myfirsttweet #streetsofoldmilwaukee

Since then she has given tweeters a front row to the construction around Streets of Old Milwaukee.

If I could wink, I wouldn't get a wink of sleep with all this racket! Hmmpphh. #frontporchpost #streetsofoldmilwaukee

Something new rolling into the #streetsofoldmilwaukee. I can't quite tell from my porch what it is... #frontporchpost

Besides giving us a view of construction, Granny is also there to add some old school wisdom to today's busy life.

Oh my! Your fast cars make me positively ill with worry. In 1901 #mke had a speed limit of 4 mph. A more appropriate speed, if you ask me.

If you would like to join in on the fun, you can follow her at @MPMGranny.

The Streets of Old Milwaukee Reimagined is due to open in December.
