This is a prestigious and highly sought after designation according to the website of the National Park Service, “The National Register of Historic Places is the official list of the Nation’s historic places worthy of preservation. Authorized by the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, the National Park Service’s National Register of Historic Places is part of a national program to coordinate and support public and private efforts to identify, evaluate, and protect America’s historical and archeological resources.”
Mark and Suzanne Winkelman, owners of the property, are thrilled and pleased with this new designation.
“This building complex is a cornerstone of the city,” Mark told Webb Weekly. “We have people visit the building all the time who speak of their family members who used to work here when it was a manufacturing center.”
