Historic Preservation Commissions are part of local governments and established through local preservation ordinances. More than 170 communities in Wisconsin have local historic preservation ordinances. A commission's size, responsibilities, and authority depend on local laws and the needs of its community.

Wisconsin Historic Preservation Commissions List

The Society has developed a partial list of Historic Preservation Commissions in Wisconsin. Use this as general reference — not as a definitive list of all commissions in Wisconsin − since contact information changes frequently and Historic Preservation Commissions may become active or inactive at any time.

To verify if your community has a historic preservation ordinance and an active Historic Preservation Commission, consult your local town council or local planning commission.
