This Place Matters

May is Historic Preservation Month!

This month we will be sharing stories about why preservation matters and how we preserve historic sites, structures, and rural landscapes in Jefferson County. Are there properties or structures you think we should highlight? Do you have questions about how a historic landmarks commission really works? This is the perfect time to let us know!

This Place Matters is a national campaign spearheaded by the National Trust for Historic Preservation that encourages people to celebrate the places that are meaningful to them and to their communities. So we hope that you will join us in celebrating preservation throughout the month!

Share stories and photos of your favorite places in Jefferson County and share them with us on Facebook or on Instagram (@JeffersonCountyHLC) using the hashtag #ThisPlaceMatters

Do you want a This Place Matters sign to use in your own photos or to hang in your window? Downlaod one HERE.
