PROMOTING & PRESERVING
SACRAMENTO'S ARCHITECTURAL HERITAGE
Historic Properties Plaque Program
A New Program of the City of Sacramento and Sacramento Heritage, Inc.
The Sacramento City Council has approved a program to officially
recognize designated historic homes and landmarks within the City of
Sacramento. Owners of residential and commercial properties that
have been designated by the City of Sacramento as either a Historic
Landmark or a Contributing Resource within a City-designated Historic
District, as listed in the Sacramento Register of Historic & Cultural
Resources, are eligible to apply for a Historic Property Plaque. The
Sacramento Register is available online on the City's preservation
The City of Sacramento has authorized Sacramento Heritage to manage the Historic Property Plaque program
in coordination with the City’s Preservation Office, and also to coordinate with property owners and the
manufacturer for the fabrication of the attractive and durable bronze plaque affixed with the City logo.
Franklin Bronze Plaques will cast the plaques. Each plaque will present basic information about the history of
the property (see sample above). Please note that the purchase price for the plaques will not be tax-
deductible. Commercial and Residential sizes are available and prices are noted on the application.
The Plaque is to be placed on the exterior façade of the building or at the front of the property to acknowledge
the date when the resource was constructed and its historic significance.
Please Note: If a building is not listed in the Sacramento Register but is at least 50 years old, it may be
eligible for nomination. Contact the City’s Preservation Office at (916) 808-8259. Property owners are
encouraged to nominate their properties and there is no charge for the nomination application.
