Glendale Heritage Preservation Purpose and Activities

Glendale Heritage Preservation was founded by Doreen Gove and other concerned Glendale citizens when they became aware that there were no safeguards to local property development. Glendale Heritage Preservation was started in 1974 and immediately began the process of mapping the village and cataloguing existing buildings. These efforts and more led to the Glendale National Historic Landmark District being awarded by the Department of the Interior in 1976. A plaque in the village square attests to this fact. Glendale Heritage Preservation is headquarters at the old Cincinnati, Hamilton & Dayton railroad depot (1877) which serves as museum, gift shop, and archive storage facility as well as a meeting place for the organization. As a non-profit corporation, Glendale Heritage Preservation is funded by membership dues, fund raiser events, and by occasional bequests and grants.
