MILWAUKEE (WITI) — Ten developers are interested in restoring historic buildings in the Soldier’s Home campus in Milwaukee.

The reaction shows a strong interest in the property — a post-Civil War-era campus of buildings that is owned by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs.

In June, they sent out a request for developers to restore up to nine historic buildings — requiring they be used to house homeless veterans.

A VA spokesman says the 10 responders will be vetted by the end of August.
