Historical Building Markers

Thank you for visiting the Oskaloosa Historical Building Markers webpage!

The Historical Building Markers Project is a community-based volunteer venture approved by the Oskaloosa Historical Preservation Comission in September of 2017. It is a work in progress. 

Currently, local historians are researching the initially targeted buildings listed below. Future plans for the project include brass and bond board markers for each building.

If you would like more information, or have information to share, please contact committee members Ann Brouwer at 641-660-8075, or Sherry Vavra at 641-660-7504. 

Please continue to check back for historical information on these buildings!
