House Plaques

Glendale Heritage Preservation provides plaques for houses in the village that were built over 100 years ago. An Historic District plaque commemorates houses built in 1901 or before, and are within the Historic District. A star attached to an Historic District plaque recognizes the building as one of the 59 “pivotal” structures used to achieve the National Historic Landmark District designation for the village. All non-pivotal historic district structures are known as “contributing” buildings. A Centennial House plaque recognizes houses built in the village at least 100 years ago. Centennial houses are not restricted to the Historic District.

An application for a plaque starts with completion of the attached form (click here to see and print the form) and a contribution of $50 for the research into the house’s history. Once the research verifies that the house qualifies for a plaque there is an additional contribution of $325 for the manufacture, placement, and installation of the plaque. The application form along with a check should be addressed to Glendale Heritage Preservation, 44 Village Square, Historic Glendale, Ohio 45246.

Over 100 houses have received either an Historic District Plaque or a Centennial House Plaque. Here is a listing of them with a link to their record in the Glendale Heritage Preservation archive. If this listing is not readable on your device click here to go to the underlying table of data.
