Historic District Update Community Meeting
In the past year, the Town of Ashland, in coordination with the Virginia Department of Historic Resources and Commonwealth Heritage Group, Inc., has been working to resurvey the existing district to account for Ashland’s history between 1934 and 1966.
There will be 111 additional contributing resources (buildings, sites, objects, and structures) to our historic district! We hope you can attend.
This update would NOT add regulations to prohibit property owners (e.g. painting their house a certain color) or install an architecture review board. It does come with the following benefits:
? Increased federal and state tax credit availability to spur investment in rehabbing historic homes and buildings (e.g. Ashland Theater).
? Improved accounting of Ashland’s post-WWII build-out, civil rights, and massive resistance era history.
? Corrected errors in the original nomination.
? Preservation and protection of Ashland’s small town characte
