National Register of Historic Places
Waseca is home to many beautiful historic buildings and homes. A self-guided
walking tour brochure is available from Waseca County
Historical Society, 315 Second Ave. (507) 835-7700
Miller-Armstrong Building
204 2ND STREET S.W. — Restaurants and B&B
Built in 1900 this is considered the best preserved example of a railroad-dependent
business in Waseca. The lumber was shipped from Thronwood, WA in 1899 to
build the only example of mill construction in southern Minnesota to support
200 pounds per square foot. There are 700 columns and beams. Although trucks
superceded trains many years ago, this three-story structure functioned as a grocery
warehouse well into the 1990s. In its heyday, the trains would pull up on one side of
the warehouse, and horse-drawn wagons from individual stores would pick up
merchandise from the docks on the other side. The Armstrongs produced cigars
and ice cream, distributed by Blue Jay Coffee. The Armstrongs also ran the ABC
Bottling Company. The building was completely renovated in 1999 by present
owner, Gene Miller.
Waseca County Courthouse
307 NORTH STATE STREET
The Waseca County Courthouse was built in 1897, replacing a
40' x 50' brick structure. This three-story building, a modified
Richardsonian Romanesque, was designed by architects Orff &
Jorelman, and constructed of Kasota limestone and Chaska
brick by J. D. Carroll at a cost of $55,833.07. It is one of 10 Waseca County sites
on the National Register of Historic Places. As a public building you may enter
during business hours.
Bailey-Lewer House
401 2ND AVENUE N.E.
Built in 1868 or 1872 by an accused horse thief, Dayton Smith.
The house was sold, and sold again to the Honorable P. C.
Bailey, an early hardware merchant in Waseca. Bailey was active
in local, as well as state politics. This house is on the National
Register of Historic Places. The Lewer family lived in it the longest, until 1993.
The house was restored in 1997 by the Waseca County Historical Society volunteers, and it presently houses the WCHS Research Center and offices.
Aughenbaugh House—Masonic Temple
831 3RD AVENUE N.E.
John W. Aughenbaugh was the expert miller and partner at the EACO Flour Mill
with E. A. Everett. The residence was built in 1897 and
stands as an example of th Renaissance Revival architecture.
E. A. Everett built a beautiful Victorian home located diagonally across the same intersection at 3rd and 9th. (That
house was torn down in 1958.) In 1931 the Aughenbaugh
home was sold by daughter Daisy Aughenbaugh to the
Tuscan Lodge #77 of the Masons for $5,000.
R. P. Ward House
804 EAST ELM
Built in 1896 by Rosco Percy Ward, son of W. G. Ward.
Percy was involved in establishing the Farmers National
Bank, was president of the Farmers National Loan and
Investment Co., and owned and operated several large
farms, one of which was purchased by the Southern Experiment Station, and which
is now the University of Minnesota Southern Research & Outreach Center.
William R. Wolf House
522 2ND AVENUE N.E. — Pine Cone B&B
Wllliam R. Wolf, Waseca merchant and businessman, built
this house c. 1895. It is the best example of Queen Anne–
style achitecture in the city of Waseca. The house was
added to the National Register in Historic Places in 1982.
