WAUSAU — Representatives from a historical and environmental consulting firm will join the Wisconsin Historical Society for a public information meeting regarding a new survey of historical buildings.
Heritage Research will conduct a reconnaissance re-survey for the city of Wausau to identify properties of historical or architectural significance that are at least 40 years old, according to a news release. The project, sponsored by the city of Wausau and the Historic Preservation Commission, will update earlier survey efforts completed in 1984.
The public information meeting will be held at 4 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 27 in the board room at Wausau City Hall, 407 Grant St., Wausau. Officials aim to solicit information from the public about potentially significant historical resources in Wausau, especially those that have “come of age” since the last survey, according to the release.
The initiative is being financed through federal funds from the national Park Service and U.S. Department of the Interior and is administered by the Wisconsin Historical Society.
