Preserving Historic Treasures in Mishawaka

Mishawaka’s rich 175-year history is proudly admired by all residents. To preserve historic treasures around the city, the Mishawaka Historic Preservation Commission was established in 1990. Mishawaka is a beautiful melting pot of cultures, architecture and communities. We recognize that truly vibrant cities cultivate a mix of historic buildings with a variety of other cultural, commercial and natural resources.

How We Serve You

The Historic Preservation Commission is responsible for the local historic site designation and the restoration of historic neighborhoods and buildings. We safeguard the city’s historic and cultural heritage by preserving sites of significance. Mishawaka has 19 single-site landmarks, 12 National Register sites and three multi-site districts. Additionally, we are honored to educate residents about the different methods and merits of preservation.

Mishawaka’s Historic Sites

Take a stroll around Mishawaka and you will see some of our historic landmarks scattered throughout the city. Will’s Clock has helped downtown visitors keep track of their daily schedules since 1871. You can also visit Battell Park for a look back at Mishawaka’s history. First constructed in 1881 as a park and converted to a Civil War memorial in 1884, this park continues to memorialize the many eras of Mishawaka. These are just a few of our beloved historic sites.
