The purpose of the project is to evacuate and relocate citizens from their homes in the floodplain of the Mississippi River. Included with this study is a contextural background treatment of Prairie du Chiens history, roughly from the arrival of the railroad until 1930. Two methodologies have been used for this survey. For buildings classified as Preferred, an on-site inspection as well as structural analysis of each building was undertaken. For buildings categorized as Non-preferred, a systematic review of historical data as well as the physical inspection was conducted. Tax rolls from 1876-1930 provided much of the information. Deed searches were carried out as the situation required.
