In 2011, an intensive survey project identified buildings within the City of Stevens Point that are potentially eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places, and provided the City with a database of its historic resources.
The Intensive Architectural/Historical Survey Report documents an intensive architectural/historical survey of all buildings located within the City of Stevens Point as of January 1, 2011. The boundaries of the survey area were set by the City and the staff of the State of Wisconsin's Division of Historic Preservation (DHP) prior to the beginning of the study.
A reconnaissance survey of the City was undertaken as the first part of the intensive architectural/historical survey, and then an intensive research effort designed to ascertain the historic and architectural significance of the buildings identified by the survey was undertaken. The results of the research are summarized in the intensive survey report.
The intensive survey ultimately surveyed 787 individual buildings. Of these, five historic districts containing a total of 157 individual buildings, and 29 individual buildings and building complexes were identified as having potential for listing in the National Register of Historic Places.
