Walmart recently awarded a $500 grant to the Winneshiek County Historic Preservation Commission for a reconnaissance survey of stone structures in Winneshiek County.

The survey report will be prepared listing the historic names of these properties, locations, dates of construction, dates of occupation and other relevant historical information. The grant funds will assist the Commission in hiring a historical consultant to assist with completing the estimated 15 – 20 Iowa Site Inventory Forms for properties that are may be eligible for the National Register of Historic Places.

The Winneshiek County Historic Preservation Commission is a county organization created in 1985 to promote the educational, cultural, economic and general welfare of the public through the recognition, enhancement and perpetuation of sites and districts of historical and cultural significance.
