The Andrew Warren Historic District. Located on the northeast edge of downtown Wausau, The Andrew Warren Historic District has been on the National Register of Historic Places since 1984. Its namesake is Andrew Warren, a sawmill owner, who in 1853 bought all the land now comprising the heart of the Wausau Eastside. Today, the district owes its charm to the fine houses and homes maintained by people who care deeply about this neighborhood.Of the 62 buildings in the 10-block Warren District, all but four are houses. Some splendid and some plain, the houses were built between 1868 and 1934. Styles include a diverse yet harmonious blend of late 19th century and early 20th century homes. Walk this District and you’ll find examples of Greek Revival, Italianate, Queen Anne, Classical Revival, and Prairie School architecture.The East HillEast of the Warren District begins an even larger historic district, the East Hill District, named for the hill rising abruptly on the east side of the Wisconsin River valley. More than 100 houses covering a 30-block radius went up between 1874 and 1930, a time frame nearly the same as for the Warren District. There are Queen Annes, Colonial Revivals, Classical Revivals, Georgian Revivals and Tudor Revivals among the many styles found here.A walk up and around and down East Hill can be done at a leisurely pace but Franklin Street is especially steep so you may prefer to drive. Except for the widely recognized Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum, the houses are private homes.Visit the website or stop by the Visitor Center for more information a walking tour map.
