Community members were able to explore downtown Wausau Saturday afternoon and learn a little bit of the history behind it.
'Downtown Open House' is a state wide event to showcase the unique historical assets in downtown.
Participating community members get a list of various businesses to visit.
Organizers said it was a way for residents to get a different look of their town.
"It's a wonderful opportunity for community members to go into a building which they may have been walking past for years," said Blake Opal- Wahoske the executive director of Wausau River District. "To learn what the business offers and the history behind it."
There were 12 different establishments that participated.
