Landmarks Commission Announces 2018 Historic Menasha Photo Contest

The Menasha Landmarks Commission and the merchants of historic downtown Menasha invite everyone to participate in the 2018 “Discover Historic Menasha” photo contest.

To coincide with May being National Historic Preservation Month, the Commission is once again holding the “identify the photo” contest to build awareness and pride in the examples of historically significant architecture that may be found on the buildings throughout Menasha.

During National Historical Preservation Month, come spend some time in Menasha. Find the locations of the photos and visit the unique business establishments in the upper Main Street Historic District and others nearby. Enjoy the river walk and Marina as spring finally arrives and the boating season is just around the bend. It is a fun and educational way for the entire family to discover Menasha.

Participants need to locate the building where each photo was taken and write the address on the back of the entry form. Entry forms, which include a list of participating merchants, will be made available on May 1st at Menasha City Center (2nd Floor), Menasha Library on Racine Street, many downtown businesses, and on the Menasha city website Landmarks page. 

Completed forms must be submitted to the Community Development Department located in the Menasha City Center, 100 Main Street, Second Floor, no later than Thursday, May 31 at 4:00 pm. Please note, there is no after-hours drop box.

All entries received at City Hall will be given a coupon for a free, single-scoop ice cream cone from Lemon Loves Lime (located at 192 Main Street).

The entries that correctly identify all 16 photos will be eligible for a drawing to receive a downtown Menasha shopping spree.
