|The Herman M. and Hanna Hediger House is nominated to the National Register of Historic Places for local significance under Criterion C for architecture. The period of significance corresponds to the date of construction- 1949. It is an excellent example of a European inspired Swiss Chalet which was commonly found in the outlying agricultural and cattle raising lands ofthe Alps in the countries of Switzerland, Germany, Austria, France, Italy and Monaco. In 2002, the City ofNeillsville received a grant from the National Park Service to conduct an intensive survey of the city in order to determine what buildings and districts were considered to be potentially eligible for the National Register. 3 In 2012, the city again received a grant from the National Park Service, this time to prepare National Register nominations based on the results of the 2003-2004 survey. Therefore, this nomination along with two other individual nominations was instructed to be prepared by the Neillsville Historic Preservation Commission with the support of the City of Neillsville.
