KAUKAUNA – The Grignon Mansion has a long, important history in the city and state, but what about its future?

The Grignon Mansion board is creating a long-range vision for the preservation, promotion, expansion and coordination of projects that have an impact on the Grignon Mansion.

To gain insight from the community, the Gignon board will hold a public workshop at 6 p.m., Wednesday, May 10 at the Municipal Services Building, 144 W. Second St., according to a post on the city’s website.

Residents will have a chance to share their thoughts, ideas, concepts and goals for Kaukauna’s “mansion in the woods.”

In addition to the Grignon Mansion, the board will seek input on future programs as they relate to historic buildings and sites, regional historic preservation and other activities surrounding historic properties in the city.

The board will analyze information, data and leads originating from the workshop to form the nucleus of a long range plan.

The Grignon Mansion in Kaukauna is one of the most historically significant properties in Wisconsin. Built in 1837, this National Register property is owned by the city of Kaukauna and cared for by the Friends of the Grignon Mansion under the oversight of the Grignon Mansion Board.
