March 3, 2011

National Register to consider Bremen landmarks

March 3, 2011

BREMEN — Within the next year, two local landmarks could be listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Working with Bremen historian RT Henke, Plymouth architect and preservationist Kurt Garner hopes to secure the designation for the Bremen Depot and the town's water storage standpipe.

The honor comes with potential financial benefits.

"Being on the registry helps you in getting grants and so forth for future projects," Henke said. "In a lot of cases it gives you points, because it is an important consideration. This really is a good thing to do."
