Hillsdale Hamlet Proclaimed A Historic District

On Saturday, June 23, about 40 Hillsdale residents, including members of the Town Board, members of Historic Hillsdale, the town’s preservation organization, owners of buildings in the Hamlet, and other interested citizens gathered at the Town Hall to celebrate the installation of four elegant signs at the entrances to the Hamlet, proclaiming Hillsdale as a Historic District, one of 13,594 in the US. Portions of the Hillsdale Hamlet have been listed on the National Register of Historic Places, contributing to the pride of the residents in their historic architecture and giving contributing building owners the eligibility to apply for state and federal tax credits on repairs to their property.

The National Register of Historic Places is the official list of the Nation’s historic places worthy of preservation, which is part of a national program to coordinate and support public and private efforts to identify, evaluate, and protect America’s historic and archeological resources. Properties listed in the Register include districts, sites, buildings, structures, and objects that are significant in American history, architecture, archeology, engineering, and culture. The National Register is administered by the National Park Service, which is part of the U.S. Department of the Interior.
