This is a prestigious and highly sought after designation according to the website of the National Park Service, â€œThe National Register of Historic Places is the official list of the Nationâ€™s historic places worthy of preservation. Authorized by the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, the National Park Serviceâ€™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 Americaâ€™s historical and archeological resources.â€
Mark and Suzanne Winkelman, owners of the property, are thrilled and pleased with this new designation.
â€œThis building complex is a cornerstone of the city,â€ Mark told Webb Weekly. â€œWe 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.â€
