LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - A building that displays one of La Crosse's most visible murals will remain standing -- at least for now.
La Crosse's Heritage Preservation Commission voted last night to make the building at the foot of the Cameron Street bridge covered with a mural of the War Eagle riverboat a historic site.
Pischke Motors previously bought the property, with the intention of demolishing the building to expand parking. However, the historic designation means the building will remain up.
Pischke has 30 days to appeal the designation to La Crosse's Common Council for a final decision.
If an appeal is made, a vote would be held during the council's October meeting.
