Historic Preservation

The City of Superior recognizes and values the importance of structures and land that has historic, architectural, or geographic significance to the City.  Superior has many structures and sites that are recognized on the National Register of Historic Places and the State of Wisconsin Register of Historic Places.  Information on structures and sites already recognized, as well as those that have been identified as potentially eligible, is in the 2019 Historic Intensive Survey.

An application and instructions for local designation of historically significant structures or districts are also available.  Once an application is submitted, City staff will review it for completeness and present completed applications to the Historic Preservation Committee (HPC).  The findings from the HPC will be considered by the City Council for a final decision on approval and designation.
