Abstract:

A survey of the project area at Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin, determined that the structures within this area are not architecturally unique or individually significant outside the context of the historical importance of Prairie du Chien itself. Within this context, however, the twenty-seven structures identified in the list of preferred properties represent a cohesive and unified resource, which contributes to the understanding of both the antique and modern history of the city. Of the twenty-seven structures, three were identified as potentially eligible for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places, under the Registers criteria of evaluation. These three structures represent distinctive methods of building and material which clarify the development of Prairie du Chien in the nineteenth century and add visibly to the knowledge of its growth. The recommendations proposed by this study outline four separate alternatives for the preservation of these resources.
