The Alliance Historic Preservation Commission will have a program on Wednesday, May 24, at 3:30 p.m., at which time the webinar, “Introduction to the National Register of Historic Places,” will be shown in Rodman Main Auditorium. According to the National Park Service website, “The National Register of Historic Places is the official list of the Nation's historic places worthy of preservation. Authorized by the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, the National Park Service's National Register of Historic Places is part of a national program to coordinate and support public and private efforts to identify, evaluate, and protect America's historic and archeological resources.”
Twelve Alliance area buildings are on the National Register and an application has been submitted for Main Street to become a historic district. There are many more Alliance buildings and homes that qualify. Applications can be submitted by anyone. Learn how at this presentation. This program is free and open to the public. No registration is needed. For more information, call 330-821-2665, ext, 224.
