The city’s Historic Preservation Commission is seeking historic property owners willing to nominate their buildings for the local Landmark designation.
This week the commission approved the application for the East End Fire Station, 915 E. Miller St., which is the last remaining historic fire station in Jefferson City.
The commission annually recognizes the newest selected Landmarks in May, along with announcing winners from the Heritage Essay and Art contests co-hosted with the Historic City of Jefferson.
Landmark nominations may be made through March 23 with applications available at the city’s website.
Heritage Contest information will be distributed through area schools this week.
The theme for Historic Preservation Month in May is “discover Jefferson City’s Hidden Gems.”
