A neighborhood on North Main Street north of New York Avenue has joined the National Register of HIstoric Places.

The North Main Street Bungalow Historic District is comprised of homes that were all built in the early decades of the 20th century. At the time, the neighborhood was home to a wide range of residents, including local carpenters and contractors, railroad employees, machinists, furniture salesmen and businessmen from the city's manufacturing companies.

Unlike other neighborhoods in the city that were developed and filled-in over time, this two-block section was constructed in a relatively short period, resulting in a neighborhood dominated by small bungalows, according to an announcement from teh Wisconsin Historical Society..

National Register designation gives property owners access to grants and for rehabilitation income tax credits, while it does not restrict private property owners in the use of their property.

The register is the official national list of historic properties in America deemed worthy of preservation and is maintained by the National Park Service in the U.S. Department of the Interior. The Wisconsin Historical Society administers the program within Wisconsin. It includes sites, buildings, structures, objects and districts that are significant in national, state or local history, architecture, archaeology, engineering or culture.
