The Town of Washington Grove the Town’s Planning Commission receives applications for building permits and subdivision plans. The Planning Commission submits most of these to the Historic Preservation Commission for review.

Reviews of Building Permit Applications

The following definition terms are used in the reviews.
Definitions of these terms have been adopted by the HPC.

Period of Significance

  • The period of significance for Washington Grove is 1873-1937. The beginning year is when the Methodists originally purchased the 258-acre property in order to establish the camp meeting. The closing year marks the dissolution of the camp meeting association and the end of the era of seasonal occupancy.

Architecture

  • Most of the houses built during the period of significance are wood frame, 1-1/2- to 2-story structures that feature open porches usually on the front, facing the walkways, and often on the sides and rear facades. The principal style of architecture for buildings constructed from the 1870’s through the 1880’s is Carpenter Gothic. The character defining element of these 1-1/2-story houses is their sharply sloped, front-gable roofs decorated with barge board and/or truss work. Houses built from 1885-1900, including 110, 111, and 117 Grove Avenue, exhibit Queen Anne influence in their larger, asymmetrical massing and complex roof forms. The architecture of houses dating from 1900-1920’s includes Craftsman influenced ones, e.g., at 103 Brown and 118 Grove Avenue.

Contributing Structure

  • is one built within the period of significance, or has unique architectural or historic significance regardless of the period of significance. The structure must retain enough of its architectural integrity that the original building may still be discernible within the present structure.

Non-Contributing Structure

  • are those that are built after the period of significance, or are so altered that the character or form of the original structure is no longer evident.

The HPC does not review building permit applications for patios, decks, and fences.
Note that the format of these reviews has changed from time to time over the past three years.

Reviews by the HPC for the PC

The content of these reviews are discussed and decided at the monthly meetings of the HPC which take place on the third Tuesday of every month in the Town Meeting Room in McCathran Hall.

The Town of Washington Grove the Town’s Planning Commission receives applications for building permits and subdivision plans. The Planning Commission submits most of these to the Historic Preservation Commission for review.

Reviews of Building Permit Applications

The following definition terms are used in the reviews.
Definitions of these terms have been adopted by the HPC.

Period of Significance

  • The period of significance for Washington Grove is 1873-1937. The beginning year is when the Methodists originally purchased the 258-acre property in order to establish the camp meeting. The closing year marks the dissolution of the camp meeting association and the end of the era of seasonal occupancy.

Architecture

  • Most of the houses built during the period of significance are wood frame, 1-1/2- to 2-story structures that feature open porches usually on the front, facing the walkways, and often on the sides and rear facades. The principal style of architecture for buildings constructed from the 1870’s through the 1880’s is Carpenter Gothic. The character defining element of these 1-1/2-story houses is their sharply sloped, front-gable roofs decorated with barge board and/or truss work. Houses built from 1885-1900, including 110, 111, and 117 Grove Avenue, exhibit Queen Anne influence in their larger, asymmetrical massing and complex roof forms. The architecture of houses dating from 1900-1920’s includes Craftsman influenced ones, e.g., at 103 Brown and 118 Grove Avenue.

Contributing Structure

  • is one built within the period of significance, or has unique architectural or historic significance regardless of the period of significance. The structure must retain enough of its architectural integrity that the original building may still be discernible within the present structure.

Non-Contributing Structure

  • are those that are built after the period of significance, or are so altered that the character or form of the original structure is no longer evident.

The HPC does not review building permit applications for patios, decks, and fences.
Note that the format of these reviews has changed from time to time over the past three years.

Note:
An application may be made to extend the historic district designation after 1937 to include the early years of the incorporation of the Town of Washington Grove, or even subsequent styles such as Cape Cod, Ramblers, or even Ranch.
