William (Bill) Rutter, an Architectural Historian with BB&E, recently completed a National Register of Historic Places nomination for the Escanaba Downtown Historic District. The Escanaba Central Historic District encompasses approximately 20 linear blocks within the city, and is composed of a range of structures that includes commercial blocks, school buildings, churches, industrial buildings, hotels, state and local government offices, and movie theaters. Bill presented the findings at the Escanaba City Hall in early August during a city-wide public information meeting. The nomination has been sent to the State Register Review Board for approval.
