If you weren't able to make the free showing or forgot to tune to Milwaukee Public Television on Thursday when it first hit the air, don't fret — the second season premiere of " Around the Corner with John McGivern," featuring Shorewood, is available online in its entirety.
Emmy award-winning actor John McGivern leads unique field trips through Wisconsin towns and neighborhoods discovering their secrets and history. In all of the episodes he bumps into local historian John Gurda, who shares fascinating historical gems about town settlers, buildings, parks and neighborhoods.
When McGivern visited Shorewood this summer, he ran into Gurda in Hubbard Park. He also chats with business owners at Goody Gourmets, Benji's Deli, Vanity Fur and Chattel Changers, drops by the Wisconsin Gazette newsroom, explores historic landmarks like the so-called "Mushroom House" on North Lake Drive and interviews with Village President Guy Johnson and Shorewood High School Principal Matt Joynt, among others.
