Congratulations to Gorman & Company!
The Gorman & Company was awarded the Wisconsin Historical Society's Historic Preservation Award for transforming Oregon's historic Red Brick School into their office headquarters. The annual award acknowledges the best effort to preserve a historical property in Wisconsin. The school was originally built in 1922 and served as a school into the early 1990's.
The award was presented at the Red Brick School on Friday, Sept 5th. Ellsworth Brown, director of the Wisconsin Historical Society presented the award to Gary Gorman. Other speakers included Ruth Hartley Barker, Director of the Wisconsin Historical Society; Gary Gorman, President of Gorman & Company; and Joan Gefke, Oregon Preservation Commission.
The Oregon Area Historical Society supported the hiring of a consultant to research and prepare nomination papers for listing on the National Register of Historical Places with a contribution of $2,100. The Red Brick was added to the National Register in April, 1998.
