Long Description:

From the City of Wausau web site:
"The Warren District is named after sawmill owner Andrew Warren, who purchased the land in 1853. The sixty-two buildings, mostly homes built between 1868 and 1934, comprise this architecturally significant area in the heart of Wausau’s east side. Buildings from the Prairie School of Architecture exist here as well as examples of Greek Revival, Italianate, Queen Anne, and Neo-Classical Revival styles. The two homes that comprise the Marathon Country Historical Museum, Society and Library are located in this district.

A free brochure containing a self-guided tour of historic neighborhoods is available at area museums and the Wausau Convention and Visitor’s Bureau. "City in the Pinery - A Guide to Wausau's Historic Architecture," a pictorial and informational publication, is also sold in several shops throughout the Wausau Area."
