Wisconsin Historic Preservation and Archaeology Month
Each year in May Wisconsin celebrates Historic Preservation and Archaeology Month. This celebration offers many opportunities to celebrate your community's history and heritage. All over the state, activities are held that remind us of the important historic resources that give meaning and a sense of place to our communities — and focus attention on how critical it is to make sure they are preserved. Check out the events calendar in the column to the left, and attend one that is close to you. And if your community's preservation month activity is not yet listed, send us the information by following the link below.
Check this page next spring to submit an event online for the upcoming Historic Preservation and Archaelogy Month.
Events may be submitted online.
LOOKING FOR A HISTORIC PRESERVATION AND ARCHAEOLOGY MONTH EVENT?
What if there isn't a Historic Preservation and Archaeology
Month event scheduled in your community? The Wisconsin Historical
Society has developed a PowerPoint presentation titled Understanding
Historic Preservation. This presentation explains the
basics of historic preservation and includes an excellent overview
of how the Wisconsin Historical Society can assist you with
your local historic preservation efforts. Contact us to schedule
this free, 30-minute program in your community. All you need
to provide is a meeting space and a receptive audience.
Staff availability is limited, so please contact Joe DeRose for more information or to
reserve your spot on Wisconsin's Historic Preservation and
Archaeology month calendar now.
