Notes
Survey number HAER WI-70-A
Building/structure dates: 1897 initial construction
Building/structure dates: 1908 subsequent work
Significance: Waterworks Station No. 1 represents Waupaca's first efforts to provide its growing population with a municipal water system. After several false starts, construction on the building began in 1897. Put into service later that year, the station met the city's needs until 1908 when an additional station was built. Station No. 1 remained in service until about 1934, and is significant as a manifestation of the city's early commitment to provide its citizens with a first-rate, municipal water system.
