Our Fourth Annual Historic Homes Tour will be another day filled with great history, interesting stories and beautiful homes. We will be starting with the A.P. Lyman Home at 1126 N. 6th St. This beautiful Italianate Home was built in 1868 for Asahel P. Lyman, an early local entrepreneur having been involved in shipbuilding and bringing the first railroad to Sheboygan. Our next stop is Jake’s Cafe, 529 Ontario Ave. Jake’s Cafe allows us to speak on four historic properties in one stop. The property consist of the Margaret De Ville House, Seideman House/St. Mark’s old parsonage and the First Baptist Church and Parsonage. The final stop is the Washington School Apartments, 1238 Geele Ave. The former elementary school, built in 1911, has been preserved and the former classrooms renovated in to apartments. It is a great example of historic preservation and the benefits that can be had with preservation.
