Waukesha Preservation Alliance, along with many other partner organizations, is proud to host Historic Preservation Days on Saturday, May 16th and Sunday, May 17th, 2015.

This annual event brings local history to life for all ages. Saturday’s events include historic walking tours of Downtown Waukesha, as well as the historic Dunbar Oaks neighborhood, and an opportunity to view and learn the history of Silurian spring, to name a few. On Sunday, open houses of historic homes will be offered in the Bethesda Park/Dunbar Oaks neighborhood. The majority of events are free.
