Project Details

Building ExteriorConstructed in 1907, the rectangular three-story Owatonna City and Fireman's Hall building faces the city square to the north. The structure was individually listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1997.

The City of Owatonna is establishing rehabilitation requirements for the exterior masonry and the two towers and applied for funding to create plans and specifications for roofing and masonry repairs to the Owatonna City and Fireman's Hall. The very visible and well-used public building is still a functioning firehouse and houses other critical emergency response departments. The assessment will be used to set the scope of work and guide the construction document process.
