The Mount Horeb Landmarks Foundation, Inc., established in April 2002, was organized to identify and advance awareness of buildings, structures and landmarks of historical significance in the Mount Horeb area and to support the development, restoration, conservation, protection and preservation of those buildings, structures and landmarks for the benefit of the general public.
It’s not just about the school……
Although the idea for the organization of the Mount Horeb Landmarks Foundation, Inc. came about because of the pending demolition of the District Number 1 School House, the Landmarks Foundation will continue on after the school house restoration is complete.
Many communities have similar organizations and projects, which not only include the restoration of landmarks, but also such activities as walking and bus tours, educational events, historical marker projects, publication of preservation related literature and the promotion and advocacy of historical preservation.
