The draft copy of the updated and expanded National Register of Historic Places Historic District Nomination is available as a pdf on the Town website.

This document, prepared by our consultants, Robinson & Associates, contains a wealth of information about the Town and its history. Would you like to learn more about the Town’s five periods of development, our “neighborhoods” (tent department, cottage department, etc.), our many parks and forest preserves, our unique circulation systems, architectural styles, or the influence of the B&O Railroad and the Chautauqua movement? It’s all in the document – plus photographs, historical maps, and a map of the proposed redefined historic district boundaries. It’s a comprehensive document – please take some time to explore it.
