Richland Center, WI (WXOW) – You can help a Wisconsin landmark maximize a financial boost from the National Parks Service.
The A.D. German Warehouse Conservancy stands to earn $360,250 as part of the Parks Service’s Save America’s Treasures grant program. The service awarded the competitive matching grant to just two sites in the entire state.
“It is a matching grant program,” said Conservancy president Derek Kalish. “Now, we just need to raise the match.”
Legendary architect Frank Lloyd Wright designed the Warehouse. Construction began in 1917 in his birthplace of Richland Center but remained unfinished for years. The Conservancy recently took over the preservation of the building with the goal of maintaining a museum dedicated to Wright’s life and legacy.
