Wisconsin Historical Society to Conduct Survey of Historical Buildings in Rural Kenosha County

Bristol, Wis. – The State Historic Preservation Office at the Wisconsin Historical Society will be funding an intensive survey of historic buildings in rural Kenosha County in 2019.

The project will identify and document important properties that may benefit from economic and technical assistance provided through the Society’s historic preservation program. The information from the survey will aid property owners, promote economic development and reinvestment, support historic tourism and provide the county with information to assist future planning for the preservation of these irreplaceable resources.

The Wisconsin Historical Society will be holding an informational meeting regarding this project on Tuesday, March 5 at 6:00 p.m. at the Village of Bristol Municipal Building.  The address is 19801 83rd St. in Bristol. The meeting is open to the public.

For more information on the survey contact Joe DeRose, survey and registration historian at the Wisconsin Historical Society at jrderose@wisc.edu.
