ACROSS OUR COMMUNITIES
Salem Preservation plans open house
SALEM– Salem Preservation will present an open to the public, special home education program at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Ruth Smucker House, 271 S. Broadway Ave. in downtown Salem. The program is a how-to event on how to get recognition for a historic home. A Salem Preservation expert will provide hands-on information on several platforms of recognition available to all Salem area historic homeowners.
A historic home can be recognized locally, statewide or nationally. Locally the Century Home plaquing program is available to all local residents who have 100-plus year old homes and want to honor their home with a certified Century Home plaque. The Ohio Historic Inventory is a statewide register of Ohio’s historic homes. The Ohio Historic Register can be used to enhance a home and community in several ways. The National Register of Historic Places is the ultimate recognition that can be achieved for a home.
All three programs require some paperwork for each of the three categories. The Salem Preservation expert will explain in plain English the step-by-step procedure to achieve each recognition. For information on Salem Preservation visit www.salempreservationsociety.org.
