The Burlington Community Swimming Pools and Bathhouse complex was first identified as potentially eligible for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places in the Architectural & Intensive Survey of the City of Burlington that was completed by Legacy Architecture, Inc. in 2012. The survey identified the complex as having local significance under the National Register Criterion C for Architecture for having a high degree of integrity in its representation of contemporary style architecture and use of locally manufactured pre-stressed and pre-cast concrete structural members. Utilizing the Wisconsin Historical Society's Cultural Resource Management in Wisconsin, research centered on evaluating the complex utilizing the contemporary style and concrete subsections of the Architecture study unit of the aforementioned text and other sources. The results of this research are detailed below and show that the Burlington Community Swimming Pools & Bathhouse complex possesses local significance under National Register Criterion Cas an excellent example of contemporary style architecture.
