The Chippewa Valley has a long history of business, entrepreneurial and community prosperity over its history. To help preserve, celebrate and display of the area’s history the Chippewa County WI Genealogical Society embarked on construction of a new Chippewa Area Historical Center. Located outside the entrance of Irvine Park the center was designed by CBS2 of Chippewa Falls. The company has a long tradition of supporting Chippewa County Economic Development Corporation (CCDEC), and the surrounding communities. The 19,000-square-foot History Center will include exterior design elements from the Chippewa Lumber and Boom Company, which was promoted as the largest sawmill in the world under one roof. The building also features large spaces for events highlighting local history, meeting rooms and a wide array of other informational and educational attractions. Construction of the new Chippewa Area History is expected to be completed by the end of 2021, early 2022. Another great project for Chippewa County!
