The City of New Ulm is asking for the public’s help to locate any information on Hermann Monument between the years of 1897-1950. We are seeking any information to accurately document any changes or construction efforts on the monument. The City is currently with MacDonald & Mack Architects on a Comprehensive Historic Building Conditions Assessment, funded by the State of Minnesota’s Historic Preservation Office. The Historic Buildings Assessment will help them better understand the materials used and construction techniques used in the construction of the monument, insight on the current condition of the monument’s structural integrity, and provide guidance on protection of this historic monument. Together with the State Historic Preservation Office and MacDonald and Mack Architects, they are planning on completion of the conditions assessment by the end of 2018 and will have developed a scope of work to move forward with on the site. If anyone has any photos, drawings, sketches or other information regarding the Hermann Monument, please contact the City of New Ulm Building Safety Department at (507) 359-8245.
