Downtown get federal historic listing

The Downtown Plymouth Historic District, bounded by the 100, 200, 300, and 400 blocks of East Mill Street, was listed in the National Register and State Register of Historic Places by the Secretary of the Interior June 14.

The effort to list downtown was a two-year effort by local officials with the assistance of Legacy Architecture of Sheboygan.

Properties listed in the National Register and State Register of Historic Places are eligible for the Federal Historic Preservation Tax program and the Wisconsin Historic Preservation Tax program. Each program returns up to 20 percent of the cost of rehabilitating historic buildings to owners as a federal or Wisconsin income tax credit. Using both program generates tax credits up to 40 percent of the cost of rehabbing historic properties.

For more information about these tax programs, please visit the Wisconsin Historical Society website at www.wisconsinhistory.org. Information about the Wisconsin program is also available on the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) website at www.inwisconsin.com.

The Plymouth Redevelopment Authority (RDA) plans on using the Wisconsin Historic Preservation Tax program as part of the effort to rehab 133 E. Mill St. The signature project includes a planned cheesethemed store and heritage center as part of its “Cheese Capital of the World” economic development strategy.
