The Heirloom and Landmark Sites program is a joint effort of the City of Stillwater and the Heritage Preservation Commission (HPC) to honor property owners who maintain the historical character of their building, sites and structures. In combination with its regulatory programs, this recognition program helps the City and its HPC work towards the long term preservation of Stillwater’s historic community character.
The goals of Heirloom Home and Landmark Site are to:
- Acknowledge property owners who have voluntarily preserved or restored their historic home, building, or site.
- Help property owners learn how to preserve their historic homes by providing technical assistance that shows homeowners how to maintain the historical character of their homes while also updating them to meet the demands of the twenty-first century.
- Preserve Stillwater's historic neighborhoods to ensure the community maintains its identity and appeal as a historic river city and tourist destination.
- Educate the general public about Stillwater’s older neighborhoods and properties.
