The State of Wisconsin Historical Society has added Horicon State Bank to the State Register of Historical Places, the company announced Friday.

For achieving the award, Horicon Bank is eligible to be placed on the National Register of Historic Places when the Wisconsin Historical Society presents their nomination to the Department of the Interior.

Based in Horicon and with an office in West Bend, Horicon Bank’s nomination was submitted two years ago by Legacy Architecture of Sheboygan.

The Wisconsin Historical Society considered the buildings’ merit under the categories of both history and architecture. The building was designed by Milwaukee architect, Herman Buemming.

“We think being added to the State Register of Historical Places really honors our past and the vision of the men who built the bank many years ago,” said Fred C. Schwertfeger, vice president of communication, in a news release.
