The Spokane City/County Historic Preservation Office and the Spokane Historic Landmarks Commission are local government programs that share responsibility for the stewardship of historic and architecturally significant properties within the City of Spokane and unincorporated areas of Spokane County. This website provides information about Spokane’s historic properties and districts as well as assistance with these important preservation tools:
- The Spokane Register of Historic Places
- Design Review for designated historic buildings
- Local financial incentives for historic property rehabilitation
- Certified Local Government programs
Although it’s always preservation month around here, May has officially held the title since 1973. This is a great time to showcase the social and economic benefits of historic preservation!
We have some wonderful events planned so check back on May 1st to see how we’re going to celebrate!
