Museum receives preservation award

Historic School Museum received a preservation award recently.

The Wisconsin Trust for Historic Preservation has awarded their 2019 Preservation Award to Cambridge Historic School Foundation(CHSF). This annual award was presented to Nancy Amacher, president of CHSF at a ceremony in Oshkosh on April 12th.

Other nominees included Northland Hotel in Green Bay, Welford Sanders Lofts in Milwaukee and The Howard building in Oshkosh. The Wisconsin Trust committee was impressed with the efforts of restoration to the 1906 Historic School building. CHSF was the only organization recognized at this event who had accomplished so much through fundraising efforts, without using tax credits to date.
