Downtown Plymouth Area Nominated for the Wisconsin Register of Historic Places

City of Plymouth, Wisconsin website, February 1, 2016.

On February 19, 2016, at the Wisconsin Historical Society in Madison, the Wisconsin Historic Preservation Review Board will consider the nomination of Plymouth's downtown as a state historic district. The area under consideration is bounded in general by the 100, 200, 300, and 400 blocks of Mill St. If the nomination is successful, it will progress to the federal level, the National Register of Historic Places. The National Register falls under the jurisdiction of the Department of the Interior's National Park Service.

What does an historic designation mean for the downtown area? It means that the Society feels the architecture and history of downtown Plymouth worthy of preservation. It also means the buildings located within the area become eligible for state and federal tax incentives which can give property owners credit for projects such as building rehabilitation.

The Wisconsin Historic Preservation Review Board meeting on February 19th begins at 9:15 AM, is open to the public, and will be held at 816 State St., Madison, WI.
