Historical and Architectural Resources Survey
Village of Thiensville                                                           Page i
The purpose of this project is to provide information regarding the Village of Thiensville with the
context of the historical/architectural resources located in the community. This material may be
useful in the development of local preservation plans; to identify buildings, structures, sites and
historic districts that meet the criteria for listing in the National Register of Historic Places; and to
increase public and private sector awareness of the community's historical and architectural heritage.
Funded in part through a National Park Service grant-in-aid administered by the Wisconsin
Historical Society, the Village of Thiensville contracted with Heritage Research, Ltd., to conduct
both a reconnaissance and intensive survey within the village's corporate limits. A total of 161
properties offered enough visual interest to warrant a photograph and preparation of a
Reconnaissance Survey Inventory Card. Among the resources surveyed, two historic districts and
fifteen individual properties were considered for National Register eligibility and are discussed in
this report. Of these, both historic districts and eleven properties (two of which are located within
one of the historic districts) are thought to be potentially eligible for the Register. Of the remaining
four, two are regarded as potentially eligible once they turn fifty years of age and further research
is recommended for two properties. Of the two National Register Historic Districts that were
identified, the Main Street Historic District consists often resources, including five commercial, one
governmental and three residential structures, as well as one outbuilding; the dates for all of which
range from 1895 to 1927. The Green Bay Road Historic District, which consists of eleven properties,
also includes both commercial and residential structures which range in date from circa 1884 to
