STEVENS POINT — As May ushers in Historic Preservation Month, a special program has been arranged to commemorate and explore the iconic structures that have shaped Stevens Point through the ages.

The presentation, led by Portage County Historical Society Executive Director John Harry, will delve into the evolution of Stevens Point’s built environment, highlighting the stories of the individuals who have contributed to the city’s development. Featured landmarks will include the Opera House/Fox Theatre, UWSP’s Old Main, various places of worship, and the renowned Point Brewery.

Attendees will also gain insights into the history of some of the city’s most endangered buildings — and those that have not endured — to the present day.

The event, scheduled for 7 p.m. on Tuesday, May 14, offers one of the earliest opportunities to explore the newest Stevens Point landmark, Point Brewery’s new taproom.

Tickets are priced at $5 for members and $8 for non-members and can be purchased here.
