Historical Marker at 2825 Bridge Avenue, 1978

The original marker designated 2825 Bridge Ave as the site of Heisman's birthplace based on a research error. Standing proudly is Edward J. Wagner, V.P. of the West Side Savings and Loan Association, who organized his company's efforts to purchase the home standing on the site. In the mid-1970s, an effort was made to establish a foundation with the intent of restoring the home as museum/shrine to Heisman for approximately $55,000.
