Eau Claire Landmarks
More and more Americans are realizing the importance of saving tangible links with their past; the statues, houses, and wordplaces of the courageous men and women who shaped our cities and towns. To this end, in 1974 the Eau Claire City Council created the Eau Claire Landmarks Commission. The seven appointed commission members are charged with protecting, enhancing, and preserving properties and sites which reflect Eau Claire's cultural, social, economic, political, and architectural history. Such locally important properties are designated as Eau Claire Landmarks. Some are also recognized as historically important at the national level and are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. This booklet of designated historic properties is published bu the Eau Claire Landmarks Commission to foster a greater awareness and apprectiation of the citys past, a stronger civic pride and a firm committment to historic preservation.
