Historic Preservation

Historic Preservation efforts add to the quality of life and livability of Lincoln for its residents by preserving and celebrating its history. The preservation program is housed in the Planning Department and guided by an appointed, volunteer Historic Preservation Commission. Through programs of research, evaluation, designation of significant places, and education, historic preservation seeks to enhance a community's sense of place and distinct identity, for the benefit of residents and visitors. We assist property owners and neighborhoods desiring historic recognition such as listing on the National Register of Historic Places and designation as City of Lincoln Landmarks and Landmark Districts. The Commission reviews proposed changes to designated landmarks and properties within landmark districts and works with owners to maintain and preserve significant historic places providing information regarding federal and state tax incentive programs for historic rehabilitation
