The Walcourt building was built in 1927 by architect Joe Davis and builder Charles G. Beveridge and opened as an apartment building by its original owner, H.E. Musson. The 9,378-square-foot, two-story red brick building was designed in a Jacobethan Revival style of architecture.

In 1982, the building was listed on the National Register of Historic places. At the time, it was described as “architecturally interesting.”

Pictures Found

Inside we managed to find a few old slides that contained pictures of families and people living in the Walcourt. Here are the slides we found:

If you happen to know who is pictured, please let us know!

Until recently, the building’s windows and doors were boarded up. A sign outside warned against trespassing. Beside the building is a vacant wood-framed house at 141 NE 13th St., which is enclosed along with the Walcourt building by a shared fence.

Renovation

Recently, construction has began to repurpose this historic landmark in office spaces. More details to follow! Click here to read Article by Steve Lackmeyer in 2018

Currently being renovated! New roof, new windows, fixing the masonry where it’s needed. Excited to see it finished!

Until the family decides what they are going to do and the court agrees, it willl sit and rot. It's a shame greed and hatred for one another stifles potential greatness for all.

I have read somewhere that there have been several attempts to buy the old Walcourt, but the owners have refused all offers.

If this place is a national historic building why is it such a dump? Aren't these kind of places supposed to be kept up correctly

I lived in this building in 1965, it was awesome, so sorry that the owner will not sell or fix it back to its glory days.
