Summary

  • A documentary film about the preservation and moving of an historic 360-foot cut-stone wall in Menomonie, Wisconsin designed in the 1870s by landscape architects Horace William Shaler Cleveland and William Richardson French (although the video suggests that Warren Manning was the designer). The wall enclosed the estate of William Wilson, one of the founders of the Knapp, Stout & Co. The video shows both the deconstruction and reconstruction with narration about the history of the wall. Also included in the collection are notes about the project by Jack Holzhueter of the State Historical Society of Wisconsin staff, and information about the dedication ceremony.
