Pioneer Rehabilitation Center
Wisconsin Registered Landmark
In the First American National Bank building which once stood here, Employers Insurance of Wausau opened, on June 1, 1928, a facility for rehabilitating injured workers. It was the first center of its kind established by the insurance industry.
