Shorewood Architecture Reflects Village History: Shorewood Architecture and the Review of 2011 Historic Survey

Tuesday, May 4

6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Location: Virtual via Zoom

Shorewood Architecture Reflects Village History: How Can We Leverage Our Historic Resources to Benefit the Whole Community? is a three-part series that  will cover the Village of Shorewood's history, architecture, and tools for conservation. Participants will be encouraged to share opinions and ideas on steps the Village could take to conserve the unique historic character of places and neighborhoods that bear witness to the community’s history.

Session Two: Shorewood Architecture and Review of the 2011 Historic Survey

This session will present a review of historic places and neighborhoods in Shorewood that have been identified or designated as potentially historically significant. Jason Tish of the Wisconsin State Historic Preservation Office will present the highlights of Architectural Survey of Shorewood, Wisconsin completed in 2011. He will explain how historical places are officially designated and what affects that designation would have on the community. Jason will also comment on the buildings in Shorewood that are already on the National Register of Historic Places. After the presentation, attendees will be invited to comment and ask questions.

At the end of the three sessions, attendee opinions on historic preservation in Shorewood, the usefulness of particular preservation tools and next steps for our Village will be solicited in a questionnaire.

This program will be held virtually via Zoom. Please register HERE.
