The Dr. Jacques Hussussian House
4668 North Lake Drive
By Tom Fehring
This brick Contemporary residence was constructed in 1971 Dr. Jacques Hussussian at an estimated price of $80,000. It sits on a bluff overlooking Lake Michigan. It was designed by architect Richard Diedrich.
The residence was identified as architecturally significant by the Wisconsin State Historical Society in a 1980 survey. Significant modifications to the house were underway in year 2009.
The architectural firm Miller, Walz, Diedrich & Associates is known for designing contemporary structures and is probably best known for designing Milwaukee’s post office at 345 W. Saint Paul Avenue.
Dr. Hussussian practiced orthopedics in Milwaukee. He received his medical degree from Alexandria University, Alexandria, Egypt.

About "Preserving Our Past"
The Village of Whitefish Bay is a community of residential neighborhoods, punctuated with an attractive walking district of fine stores, excellent schools and vibrant houses of worship. It is filled with homes and other buildings that are architecturally rich, well-designed and maintained, and diverse in character.
Its residents have contributed much to the broad cultural, political, economic and social history of the area. And its residents are interested in maintaining their connections with an historic past.
To help maintain these connections, the Historic Preservation Commission is in the process of identifying buildings and historic sites that it believes may be architecturally significant or historic. On a weekly basis we will feature a building or site from our inventory.
