The Historic District Council has been a private non-profit organization for over 40 years.

Over those years we have distributed numerous publications, including books, informational pamphlets, and District Lines, a seasonal newsletter which began in 1986. We also hold annual events, including the Landmarks Lion Awards, the Preservation Conference, and the Grassroots Awards & Preservation Party.

We invite you to review our archive to learn about past events and publications:
