May is Historic Preservation Month

2016_05_May_Natl_Presrv_Month

May is National Historic Preservation Month. The National Trust for Historic Preservation has themed this year “This Place Matters,” and given that Culver City is about to celebrate our centennial year, we couldn’t agree more!

Please join us in representing the Culver City Historical Society as we accept a proclamation from our City Council designating May as Historic Preservation Month this coming Monday:

Monday, May 23, 2016, 7:00 p.m.
Mike Balkman Council Chambers
City of Culver City – City Hall
9770 Culver Blvd., Culver City, 90232

The presentation is at the top of the agenda, brief with a quick group photo. Showing your presence and passion for preserving our city’s history will go far!

With the upcoming celebration of our city’s centennial year, we are also looking for suggestions for a centennial marking, and members to serve on the committee. To learn more about each site already marked, you can search the marked sites section of our website. The site should be at least 50 years old and hold architectural or cultural significance to the city. Send us an email with your suggestions!

If you’re on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram), share your favorite Culver City photos. Use the hashtag #ThisPlaceMatters and tag us!
