Mission

The mission of the Martin County Historic Preservation Board is to advance the local designation of the County’s historic structures and landmarks in order to raise awareness of the importance of the County’s architectural and archaeological legacy to community identity and the preservation of Martin County’s unique past.

Overview

The Martin County Historic Preservation Board (HPB) was created in 2003 when the Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) adopted its Historic Preservation Ordinance. The HPB is a group of citizens appointed by the BOCC to assist them in implementing the ordinance.

Some of the HPB's powers and duties include designating structures that are more than 50 years old to the Martin County Register of Historic Landmarks and promoting an awareness of the benefits of historic preservation to the community. The Board has helped Martin County preserve valuable local history by designating historic structures such as: the Mansion at Tuckahoe, the House of Refuge, Captain Sewall's House, the New Monrovia One-Room Schoolhouse, and the Golden Gate Building.

The Historic Preservation Board also coordinates Historic Preservation Month each May to educate the public about Martin County’s historic treasures and the importance of historic preservation. If you have any questions about historic preservation in Martin County, please contact us.
