Update: Menomonie Office Location

Dear Clients and Community:

As many of you may already be aware, an unfortunate event occurred on May 16th at our Menomonie office location, 604 Wilson Avenue. In the middle of the night, one of the main loadbearing beams in the oldest portion of the building collapsed. This resulted in substantial damage to multiple levels of our building and our office has been vacant since then due to unsafe work conditions.

This building holds significant history to the City of Menomonie and those who reside here. This historic building dates back to 1877 when it was occupied by the Methodist Episcopal Society. In that time, the building went through several renovation and remodeling projects before Cedar Corporation purchased the building in 1979. Upon moving in, the building was remodeled into an office space. This building has a long-standing history with the City of Menomonie and its residents, and its presence has served numerous purposes for multiple organizations providing value to the community.

It is time that we officially announce moving forward with the demolition of this treasured building. The structure was thoroughly reviewed by a Forensic Structural Engineer, along with our structural engineers, and it was determined that it would not be feasible, practical, or safe to save. We understand that this decision may be difficult to understand due to the importance of the building, the loss of history, and any personal ties to our community, but ultimately it came down to the safety of our employees and the public.

Demolition will be completed by August 25. Design and construction plans are currently being evaluated. We acknowledge that there is historical significance of this building, however, we are excited to move forward with a new Menomonie office building expected to be completed in 2025.

In the interim, you can find our staff located at the following addresses until we move into our new office:
2919 Schneider Avenue SE, Menomonie, WI
