TOMAH, Wis. (WKBT) -

Construction on a new home for the Tomah visitor's center can begin.

Tomah's former DNR Ranger Station will soon become the new location for the Tomah Chamber and Visitor's Center. The historic building returned to city ownership after the DNR left.

The Tomah city government spent the last year finalizing finances and creating plans for what the center should look like. And with contractors found, the group can begin renovating the building.

"Our current location is off of Main Street, and we are very hard to find, and so we really spent about a year looking for the right property for us. We looked north of town, we talked about building, and we talked about downtown, and it just happened to be that this location opened up at the time that we were trying to make a decision,” said Tomah Chamber and Visitor’s Center CEO and President Tina Thompson.

Construction on the Tomah Chamber and Visitor's Center will begin Monday. The organization hopes to be in the new location by next April.

Plans include preserving some of the history found in the 1930's building.
