Historic Building Marker Program


Knox Heritage awards Historic Building Markers for the purpose of alerting the public that a building is an important element of the community’s built environment. It may be of outstanding historic importance or be a good local example of a particular architectural style, which exhibits excellence in restoration and maintenance. Please note that the oval bronze markers you may have seen on historic downtown buildings are part of the Historic Downtown Walking Tour and is a separate program.

If you are interested in learning more about identifying your building or residence with a Knox Heritage marker, please take time to review the following materials:
