10 Steps to Establishi​ng a Local Historic District

Dear Readers,

You may know that we have historic districts in Amador County and may be familiar with them, but many may not understand what had to be done to create those districts, or what it takes to maintain an active district! I thought this link provided an easy explanation of the process and  couple of useful ideas on keeping a district vital. For all of you preservation activists, "Preservation Nation" is an interesting and helpful web site from the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

The National Trust for Historic Preservation is, "... the nation’s leading voice of preservation, the National Trust for Historic Preservation is focused on saving America’s historic places. These are the places that tell our stories, offer unique and memorable experiences today, and promise a vibrant future for the generations of tomorrow."  Speaking of story-telling, don't forget the eager group of Cedric Clute, Bonnie Evans, and Keith Sweet who are re-invigorating an Oral History Program. For more information, or to tell your story, please contact Keith at or 209-419-3770.
