Summary of Significance

The Marshfield Senior High School is an excellent, largely intact example of the Art Moderne style. The school was state-of-the-art for its time. The Marshfield Senior High School also represents the work of a “master” architectural firm in Wisconsin, Eschweiler & Eschweiler of Milwaukee. The period of significance extends from 1937 – 1968 to include the construction dates of the Eschweiler & Eschweiler-designed building and its final use as a high school. The building retains very good integrity outside and inside.
