WAUSAU – Wausau River District will host a virtual Downtown History Walk again this year on Facebook Live.

The community is invited to virtually travel throughout downtown Wausau at noon May 8 as Wausau’s architectural, cultural, and social history are explored.

Some of the highlighted properties will include:

  • Eye Clinic of Wisconsin: A pillar in downtown Wausau since the 1960s.
  • Washington Square: The first building in Wausau to have an elevator and air conditioning
  • Wausau Museum of Contemporary Art: The former Wausau Club, founded by members of the Wausau Group, a group that decided to stay in Wausau after the logging boom ended and invested in other ventures, such as Wausau Paper, Employers Mutual Liability Insurance and Marathon Electric.
