On 70th and Capitol Drive, Kitt’s Frozen Custard Drive-In was started in the 1950s by the Kittridge family. For drive-in or walk-up customers, it’s a neighborhood staple for frozen custard and delicious burgers. When you’re there, be sure to look up to see some layers of their history.
In the heart of Milwaukee’s northwest side, Capitol Heights is populated by bungalows, ranch homes and Cape Cod-styled homes built in the 1940s and ’50s. The neighborhood features Dineen Park, Midtown Shopping Center (formerly Capitol Court) and Capitol Library. Morse Marshall School for the Gifted and Talented, a merger of two Milwaukee MPS mainstays (Morse Middle School and John Marshall High School) that came together in 2010, is also in the area.
