The Concord Historical Commission wants homeowners in West Concord to know that a new house marker has been designed specifically for West Concord homes of historic interest. The markers feature an engraving of the West Concord Depot taken from the original newspaper article when it was built, and were created by Crosby Design in West Concord.
To be eligible for a marker, a property must be at least 50 years old, have some association with a particular person or event in Concord’s history, or be architecturally significant. Copies of the Survey of Historical and Architectural Resources of Concord, MA are available in the libraries and at the Planning Office at 141 Keyes Road and will help homeowners determine if their homes are eligible for a marker.
To request a marker, pick up and fill out an application form at the Planning Department at 141 Keyes Road or download it by clicking here.
Send the application, copied documentation of your home’s history to the Concord Historical Commission at 141 Keyes Road, Concord, MA 01742.
The Applicant will be notified by the Historical Commission when the application is approved. The Applicant is responsible for the payment of $150 to Crosby Designs when the sign order is placed.
