Preservation Efforts in Waseca CountyNew plans at the Ward house on East Elm . . .The Waseca Heritage Preservation Commission “cut it’s teeth” recently when the new owners of the Percy Ward house applied for apermit to add a second structure to the property. We have all passed by this magnificent home many times. It will be hard to see thelandscape change from the original state. There was a carriage house at one time. It was moved to SW Waseca and converted toapartments.At a recent preservation workshop we learned some things we didn’t know. Additions are put on National Register properties all thetime. Elements from the original structure must be repeated and applied to the new, however mimicking the original too closely isnot permitted. The addition must be different from the original portion of the building.The Waseca Heritage PreservationCommission (HPC) is fortunate to haveworked with Thomas Zahn and BethanyGladhill. The team has provided theHistoric Context Study for the City ofWaseca and is currently working withthe HPC on the Trowbridge Band ShellProject. They also happened to be at ourlast meeting when the new ownerpresented preliminary drawings of theaddition. As a new commission, wehadn’t had an opportunity to work onany property let alone one of our mostrecognizable historic houses in Waseca!With guidance from Zahn and Gladhilland the State Historic PreservationArchitect Natasha Weiner we were ableto work with the new owners to makechanges that comply with NationalRegister standards.Many thanks to HPC Chair and Councilman Les Tlougan and Ranae Schult staff coordinator, for making this possible.Heritage Preservation Commission: Jean Byron, Joan Mooney, Pat Pearson, John Pribble, Robin TerrellTHE R.P.
