2014 Historic Preservation Days

Waukesha Preservation Alliance, along with many other partner organizations, is proud to host Historic Preservation Days on Saturday, May 17 and Sunday, May 18, 2014.

This annual event brings local history to life for all ages. Saturday’s events include historic walking tours, a guided springs tour, an antique vehicle display, and an opportunity to view and learn the history of Silurian spring. The Waukesha County Museum will host an open house of its exhibits. Special events include an Introduction to Tea, as well as a historic brewery memorabilia display inside a local brewery. On Sunday, open houses of historic homes will be offered. The majority of events are free.
