SIGNIFICANCE OF PROJECT: The village of Cambridge is receiving $72,700 from the Wisconsin Economic Development Corp. to help with the renovation of this 130-year-old store front. The building’s ground floor has been used for everything from a hardware store, to a meat market a sporting-goods shop and a grocery store. Its upper floor housed the village’s clerk’s office.
The WEDC’s grant will help pay for work related to fire protection, plumbing, heating and cooling. Buonincontro and his wife also own Villa Buonincontro, a five-acre wedding venue in Fort Atkinson. The couple plans to bring wedding guests to stay to the new hotel. Room rentals will also come from people from attending local events such as Fire Fest, Pottery Fest and Maxwell Street Days.
