May is National Historic Preservation Month, a time for towns and cities across the country to celebrate historic places in our communities. Lisbon’s historic properties and districts include the Stuckslager home, Lisbon United Methodist Church, Main Street Historic District, and Meyers Farmstead Historic District. Visit the www.lisbonhistoricpreservation.com website to learn more about these historic resources, designated to the National Register of Historic Places in recognition of their historic significance and importance in shaping our community.
The Lisbon Historic Preservation Commission was established by the City Council in 1991. The Commission takes leadership in local preservation efforts by identifying, evaluating, and safeguarding historic properties. The Commission is also charged with educating members of our community on the benefits of historic preservation and providing technical assistance to those interested in rehabilitating historic properties. You can connect with us and be part of the conversation by joining our Facebook group, Lisbon Historic Preservation Commission.
Take time this month to enjoy our historic homes and buildings, and to reflect on Lisbon’s rich history.
