Garver Feed Mill, the abandoned former feed mill on Madison’s East Side, is now on the State Register of Historic Places.

The building was nominated for the register under criteria A, which requires that the property be “associated with events that have made a significant contribution to the broad patterns of our history,” according to the National Park Service. The state’s Historic Preservation Review Board meets on a quarterly basis to approve nominated properties based on different criteria.

This new title comes at a time when Baum Revisions, a real estate development company, is planning to renovate the building into a local artisan food production facility. By virtue of it being listed, the property is now eligible for tax credits, said State Historic Preservation Officer Jim Draeger.
